Introduction

R.E Coursework This essay will be written about Christian beliefs on two things, the death of Jesus and life after death. These two topics are liked because Christian beliefs on life after death are rooted in Jesus death and resurrection. As for the part written on Jesus death I will write about the event which causes the authorities to go to the extreme and kill Jesus, also I will be writing about what the death of Jesus achieved for mankind.

Conclusion

The last thing that I am going to comment on is Judgement day. This is the last day in time where every one who ever was will rise under God and await judgement. This is the Christian belief.

Either way you look at it the evil are separated from the good. The good are rewarded and the evil are punished. Conclusion: Basically Jesus mission on Earth was to prepare the people for what to expect when they die, then he completed his mission by atonement or making us one with God.
