Jesus (c. 4 BCE – c. 30 CE), also known as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, is one of the central figures of Christianity. His believers, called Christians, view him as the Christ and the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament, believing him to be the Son of God who sacrificed himself to cleanse the sins of all humanity, before being resurrected from the dead and ascending to Heaven.
A Jewish carpenter and preacher in Roman Judaea, his most prominent work was the performing of grand miracles, which were actually granted by the powers of the Shroud of Eden, one of the Pieces of Eden. The Templars took notice of his many followers, and eventually learned of the source of his powers.
After being betrayed to them by Judas Iscariot, Jesus was arrested, tortured and crucified by the Templars, who took the Shroud for themselves. However, Jesus' disciples were able to recover the Shroud and briefly resurrect him.
