Jesus: The Boy

November 4, 2018 Max Frazier Series: The Thread of Redemption

Luke is the only Gospel writer who gives us a brief picture of those early years of Jesus’ life.  He records that moment when Jesus is circumcised, thus making Jesus a part of the Abrahamic Covenant.  He then records the first visit of Jesus to the Temple when He was 41 days old.  There Joseph and Mary are greeted with some amazing words by Simeon and Anna, two faithful servants of God.  Finally, when Jesus is twelve He accompanies Joseph and Mary to Jerusalem for the Passover.  It is while He is there that Jesus begins to ponder the purpose for which He came.  Some amazing truths confront us in these three brief scenes.
