He was able to walk through walls John in his resurrected body. The stone was rolled away so that everyone could see that he was risen. Mark and John omit the birth story altogether, Mark beginning his account with the baptism of Jesus and John with the creation of the cosmos. All four gospels, however, speak of the critical event of Jesus' baptism by John the Baptist.
The gospels do not mention his age, but historians say that Jesus was about thirty. John the Baptist looked to the new age, announcing that the Kingdom of God was near and baptizing people by the thousands in the River Jordan as an initiation into the kingdom to come. One of those he baptized was Jesus of Nazareth. He was accompanied by a group of followers, some of them fishermen who left their nets and their families, and some of them women whose presence can be seen throughout the period of Jesus' ministry.
Jesus attracted large crowds as he began to teach in Galilee. The gospels describe miracles performed by Jesus: healing the sick, casting out the demons of mental illness from the tormented, and even bringing the dead back to life. They also portray a powerful teacher whose parables made their point in surprising ways. In one parable, a man is robbed, beaten, and left on the road.
After his arrest, many of the disciples went into hiding. Jesus was taken to the high priest and interrogated.

He was hit and spat upon for not responding. Meanwhile, Peter had followed Jesus to the high priests' court. As he hid in the shadows, three house servants asked if he was one of Jesus' disciples and each time he denied it. After each denial, a rooster crowed. Then Jesus was led out of the house and looked directly at Peter. Peter remembered how Jesus had told him he would deny him and he wept bitterly. Judas, who was watching from a distance, became distraught by his betrayal of Jesus and attempted to return the 30 pieces of silver.
The priests told him his guilt was his own. He threw the coins into the temple and later hanged himself.
The next day, Jesus was taken to the high court where he was mocked, beaten and condemned for claiming to be the Son of God. He was brought before Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor of Judea.

The priests accused Jesus of claiming to be the king of the Jews and asked that he be condemned to death. At first Pilate tried to pass Jesus off to King Herod, but he was brought back, and Pilate told the Jewish priests he could find no fault with Jesus. The priests reminded him that anyone who claimed to be a king speaks against Caesar. Pilate publicly washed his hands of responsibility, yet ordered the crucifixion in response to the demands of the crowd.

While Jesus was on the cross, the sky darkened, and immediately upon his death, an earthquake erupted, tearing the temple's curtain from top to bottom. A soldier confirmed his death by sticking a spear into his side, which produced only water. He was taken down from the cross and buried in a nearby tomb.
Three days after his death, Jesus's tomb was found empty. He had risen from the dead and appeared first to Mary Magdalene and then to his mother Mary. They both informed the disciples, who were in hiding, and later, Jesus appeared to them and told them not to be afraid.
