This Odu is the incarnation of Jesus The son of God whom was called Jewesun in heaven and was told to make sacrifice, in order to survive the plot that was going to be hatched by human beings against him on earth. He was told to give to Esu, which he bluntly refused to do. He however agreed to make a small ebo.
The Awos told him that if he did not make the sacrifice to Esu, it was the agents of the earth that would kill him and shorten his life and missionary works. But since he had made the small ebo, he would awaken after three days and his fame would outlive him, after his return to heaven.
When Jewesun got to earth and he was about to begin his work of preaching the objectivity of truth and the way people lived in heaven, professing the love of God for his creations, Esu appeared to him in a dream.
He warned him that God had given him, Esu, Alewelishe, Onisegun, the influence of all that existed in the planetary system. Esu told Jewesun that if he did not give him what he asked, Jewesun would have himself to blame because he would cause his followers to destroy him. Jewesun once again refused to recognize Esu. Jewesun was actually killed or went home 33 years after he began his works on earth.
