The Childhood of Jesus

Extracts from this document...


Stephen Canzanese A lot of Jesus' childhood is unrecorded and unknown, but many people have their beliefs of what it was like. It may have been full of hardships or full of joy no one really knows. No one really knows who he befriended over his years as a child. Did kids back then like him? I believe it was filled with many joyful times, but also filled with hardships. I think he befriend people, but also made enemies. That's the basic childhood of any person so I believe his went the same way. Jesus was born in 4b.c.

I truly believe Jesus was like that. That's how I believe Jesus' childhood was. He possibly played sports, games and was religious. He may have been interested in knowledge. His childhood is an unknown we can only guess and believe. He could have done a lot of different things, but that's what I believe he did.
