Christ Jesus' Mission

Birth of Christ Jesus

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 

 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

The Last Supper
The Last Supper, the Eucharist also known as Communion of the Lord’s Supper was given by Christ Jesus and was the last meal before his crucifixion. He shared this last meal with his Twelve Apostles in Jerusalem. During the supper Jesus said that one of his disciples would betray him and also told that Peter, one of his disciples would deny him three times “before the cock crows in the morning.”“And as they were eating Christ said: ‘For I received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he way betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you: this do in remembrance of me.’  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them: ‘Drink ye all of it; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.'

Crucifixion Christ Jesus: 
Jesus was arrested, tried, and sentenced by Pontius Pilate to be scourged and finally executed on a cross.

Resurrection of Christ: 
Christ Jesus was resurrected on the third day after his death on the cross.

May Swamiji,s wish for each one of to change and remember our Divinity come true:
"If you hang an something you will be slave from it, hang only to the Absolute, give you fully to the Divine. Try allways to give your best. Learn to do every action for the Divine. Don't think, Help every one. Search for love in every thing around you and in every thing you are doing. This is the best prayer. And all around you will change." Amen.
