Today’s hero is Young Jesus, he shows us the gift of YOUTH.
Essential Teachers notes:
I love the story of young Jesus in the temple. A boy on the cusp of manhood astounding the scholars of the faith. Rather than take the traditional parent perspective to this story I’ve written it from the eyes of one of the temple priests. There are 2 reasons for this, firstly this story is sometimes taught as the one thing Jesus did wrong, scripture disputes this and yet from a child viewpoint it’s an easy lesson to learn. Secondly the story is an echo of a time yet to come and so the focus should be on the message of Jesus here, the significance of him being lost for 3 days can be drawn out with older groups
Main passage: Luke 2
