Long, long ago, when the Jewish religion was predominant, the priests of that religion were very wicked in many ways exploiting the ignorant people around. They preached that their holy scriptures said that people should not nurture any love for their enemies, but should hate them. Besides this, there were innumerable irregularities practiced by the Jewish priests. At that juncture, a child was born in a Jewish carpenter s family living in the village, Nazareth. It was Mary, the damsel, who gave birth to the child. This child, named Jesus Christ, even before entering into his teens, was so mature that his knowledge about God and religion were superb being far above average and definitely more than that the Jewish priests possessed. In short, he grew into an extraordinary youth. Even when he was just a youth of twenty, he went into a jungle and fasted for forty days, as a result of which he discovered the truly religious path and principles that humans should follow.
