A Radical Christ- 7 – Phase One –Three Glimpses of Jesus’ Childhood

Concluding the Preparation Phase of Jesus life map, this video looks at three moments before Jesus begins his public ministry:

  1. The deaths of all the children younger than two years, in and around Bethlehem caused by Herod’s paranoia at the news that a king had been born there. How did that story impact Jesus’understanding of his own life. How does it impact us to know that we are still alive and others are not?
  2. The finding in the temple when Jesus is twelve years old. Was this really only a Bar Mitzvah?
  3. The mission eighteen years. Did Jesus exotically got to the east for enlightenment and return to Israel with secret wisdom? Or did he, quite ordinarily simply go and grow into himself and his destiny in the humble home of Nazareth?
