Easter - the people involved

Easter the people involved Around 2000 years ago, a visitor to the ancient city Jerusalem during their annual feast of Passover, would have been confronted with an all too familiar sight.Three men were going outside the city that day to face immense suffering and finally death.Two of those men were to be put to death for their own crimes, receiving the consequences of their actions. For many this was just another day in the liie of the Roman Empire! just another crucifixion! This was the Roman way of putting felons to death.
