Sunday we’ll be looking at Luke 2:41-52.
This is the one and only account we have of Jesus as an adolescent child. Many scholars dispute its legitimacy in the text…but frankly, if someone were going to make up a story about Jesus’ childhood and insert it, I would suspect they would make it more exciting than this. I mean…Jesus gets lost at the mall? Really? That’s what someone invented to make the story more interesting? I just doubt it.
I’m going to dig into three theological truths that we learn about Jesus from this story. As you read it, what do you learn about Jesus from what he says and does?
I’m also going to draw three parallels from Joseph and Mary’s perspective concerning our own relationship to Jesus. What parallels do you see to your own journey with Christ in this section?
That’s the stuff to think about until Sunday. See yaz then!
