Episode 13: Wisdom in The Bible's Silence on Jesus' Childhood

Have you ever wondered about Jesus’ childhood? I have! Mary and Joseph knew his miraculous origin, yet they still must have wondered about him. So must his half-brothers and half-sisters. We, too, wonder what it was like. Yet maybe there was wisdom in the Bible’s silence. Maybe we would have been misled to follow Jesus in ways he doesn’t call us to follow him, such as being a craftsman — which not all of us are called to be.

Based on a blog post, “Jesus Was Perfect. That’s Why I’m Glad We Don’t Have a Record of His First Thirty Years,” and also on material in Tom Gilson’s book Too Good to be False: How Jesus’ Incomparable Character Reveals His Reality, available here.

Many who’ve read this book have had their lives lit up for Christ, so I encourage you to see what God does for you through it!
