My Hero
Emily, Age 16, Boerne, TX

My hero, Jesus Christ, has walked the Earth long before us. Around 6 to 4 BC, God sent an angel to Israel to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to Joseph, a carpenter. The angel notified Mary that by God's magnificent power, she would conceive and bear a son. When Joseph learned that she was pregnant, the angel instructed him to marry her. Joseph took Mary to Bethlehem to register for a census, an official list of the population. While they were there, Mary gave birth to Jesus. She laid him in a manger because there was no room at the Inn.

I picked Jesus as my hero because He taught us how to stay godly people and He created many miracles. During His middle age, He was in Israel He traveled around and taught sermons to the locals. His most well-known sermon taught to love your enemies, do not judge others, trust God, do not remain anxious about tomorrow, and care for others as you would have them care for you. God also gave Jesus power over disease, nature, and even death. One day while Jesus was on a road near Jericho, a crowd was following him. He heard a blind man cry out, "Jesus, have mercy on me!" And Jesus gave him back his sight, and the crowd began to glorify God.

Accused of wickedness, Jesus was arrested by Jewish leaders who wanted to eradicate him. Jesus was sentenced to death by crucifixion; He was beaten by Roman soldiers, whipped, unclothed, and placed on a cross. He was crucified between two robbers, and they all died. On the third day in the tomb, He was resurrected and the soldiers fled! I believe that Jesus was the best thing that has ever walked the Earth, and resides in the heavens today. He can heal all your pains, predicaments, heartaches, and anything in between. Jesus will always remain my most cherished hero.
