Transcript of St Jessica

St. Jessica was a derivation of Joanna. Derivation means to receive from a source of origin, or another name for a person. Jessica was the wife of Chuza, steward of King Herod Antipas, the ruler of the fourth part of Galilee. She was one of the women who helped provide for Jesus and the Apostles and was one of the three women who discovered the empty tomb of Jesus on the first Easter morning. She was one of the women who anointed the body of Jesus after his crucifixion and some people say that she was the one who
gave the head of John the Baptist a proper
burial. Burial means a person
that is getting buried.
St. Jessica's feast day is on May the 24th. There was not many websites that had information about the feast day therefore nothing else is recorded about Saint Jessica's feast day, probably because she was more of a silent type.

Who Is St. Jessica

This is Saint Jessica's medal, with her on it.
Early Life
Not much is known about the early life of Saint Jessica, the only thing that anyone ever knew about her was that she was the wife of Chuza, a steward of King Herod who ordered the death of John the Baptist. Saint Jessica was first mentioned in the Gospel of Luke for providing food and drinks for Jesus and his Disciples, she was one of the women attending to and following Christ while he was preaching.

Why I chose Saint Jessica
I chose Saint Jessica because at first I really loved the name and when I saw what she did I was really happy. The first time I went on the computer to see what she did it said that St. Jessica was one of the three women that discovered the empty tomb of Jesus on the first Easter morning and then I started to enjoy reading about her life story even though the computer did not have much information on her.
Saint Jessica is one of the women known as accompanying Jesus and the twelve disciples in the Gospel of Luke, this is what it said: “2...Mary Magdalene from whom seven demons had come out; 3...Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means" (Luke 8:2-3).
More About St. Jessica/Joanna: Luke 8:2-3
Saint Paul and Saint Jessica
Saint Paul sent a letter to the Romans and Saint Jessica suggested that Paul recognized the importance of women leaders in the Church, offering encouragement and support of her mission, and enlarging that her faith preceded into his own.
And of coarse Prezi!
