Roughly 2000 years ago, a Jewish man named Jesus of Nazareth died on a cross on a hill outside the city of Jerusalem. On either side of him two criminals shared his fate – a fate reserved only for criminals of the worst kind.
The significance of that day, a day commonly known now as “Good Friday” throughout Christendom, has been debated over the centuries following.

For others, however, Jesus was deemed a sorcerer and simply got what he deserved (see the Jewish Talmud).
