Jesus (7-2 BCE – 33 CE), also known as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, is one of the central figures of Christianity. He is viewed as the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament, believing him to be the son of God who was raised from the dead and ascended into Heaven.
His most prominent work was the performing of grand miracles, and sacrificing himself to cleanse the sins of all humanity. Christ's miracles were granted from 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.
