Young Jesus

Young Jesus

As Mary and Joseph were leaving Jerusalem, after their annual Passover visit, they lost track of Jesus. After looking for three days, they found him still in the Temple, asking questions of the Priests and learning from them. Mary was concerned, but Jesus was content and obeyed his father and mother. Growing daily in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man.

Luke 2:40
In yesterday’s episode, we learned of the visit of the wise men who came from the East to worship the Messiah. They brought lavish gifts that symbolized the royalty, divinity, and ultimate death of Christ. Even as a baby, Jesus represented a threat to the established power structure, and as we learned, King Herod sought to kill him. But God protected Joseph, Mary, and Jesus and they escaped into Egypt until Herod died. Today we’ll hear about the life of a young Jesus, before the beginning of His earthly ministry. We’ll see how even as a child He was in fellowship with the Father, and his wisdom and insight drew others unto him. And as they journeyed to Jerusalem for Passover, Joseph, and Mary will get a glimpse of just how special their child is.
