Awaken Church, a health and wealth prosperity Church based out of Jonesboro, Arkansas, is claiming that Jesus was the first victim to die of coronavirus, (Editors Note. Possibly foreshadowed in Mathew 15:2? “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat.”)
The picture comes along with a caption that reads:
The first death of Covid 19 actually happened 2000 years ago. The Bible tells us that Jesus took on every sin, sickness and every disease…Jesus bore it so you wouldn’t have to. Salvation provided forgiveness and healing…if you’ll believe it, you can receive it!
This may come as a surprise to many people, who believed he was in actuality beaten and crucified by Roman soldiers, under the authority of Pontius Pilate, at the request of the Jewish Sanhedrin.
When one keen-eyed commenter asked a very astute question, Awaken Church responded:
Using this logic, it would be fair to say that Jesus died with/ from syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia and AIDS.
We’ve reached out to Awaken Church for clarity and will update accordingly.
