6. The difficult youth of Jesus.


December 30.  Jesus is growing. He was not a normal boy and may have suffered during his childhood. This is excerpt 6 from  a  page about Jesus I am working with and will publish in its final form after Easter 2019.

This video is nice but Luke tells really a different story. Jesus is 12 year and is in the Temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them, and asking them questions. ( Luke 2:46  ) Mary and Joseph are there and are anxious after having searched  for him.  He

“49  replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?'”
This is the only text describing a young Jesus in the Gospels. You find it in  Luke 2:49

Jesus is not like other children his age, playing games with other childrens. In the film above I am reminded about a boy with Asperger.

How were his first 12 years? Did they ridiculed  him like they did years later when he was an adult? (Matthew 9: 24 )

He was a special boy, born by a unknown father. He probably did not look like his father.
Neighboors maybe  talked bad about him and his mother while their childrens listened.

Deuteronomy 23:2 supported such a treatment with this text:

HEB:  לֹא־ יָבֹ֥א מַמְזֵ֖ר בִּקְהַ֣ל יְהוָ֑ה
NAS: No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the LORD

Jesus was special, he was intelligent. He may have therefore been  a treath for other envious weak childrens in the small village of Nazareth, children looking for respect and power. Like he was as an adult. 

If bullyism existed, he was a typical victim of bullyism. I wrote about bullyism in one of my pages.  As I documented there.  Famous  Henry Thomas alias “ET-boy” and Jack Lloyd, child actor in Star Trek suffered bullyism. Why not also Jesus?

Jesus may have been quantum entangled with God and therefore talked with the knowledge of God.  But when he talked about childrens he talked like on who knew how it is to be a child and what children most of all need.

This is how Jesus talked when “people  brought babies to him” and “the  disciples scolded them“:

16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 17 In truth I tell you, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.'” (  Luke 18:15-17 )

He knew what it meant for a children to be

  • ridiculed as he maybe himself probably was ridiculed by other childrens
  • he knew how important it was to love our childrens.
  • he knew how important the “love your enemy and pardon” strategy was  as he himself had tested it
  • he knew how weak childrens can be as he himself has felt that weakness.

I think that this video from the mormon channel, gives an idea of Jesus relation with childrens.
