Text and Context Session 1: Jesus the Jewish Boy - Sample Clip

 

After introducing the themes for the teaching series, Desi introduces us to the Torah observant world of Joseph and Mary, explaining the purification rituals after the birth of a child. This leads on to the commandment relating to ritual of circumcision, and all that was associated with that time in a Jewish boy's life. The Session concludes with a detailed overview of the various stages in the education of Jewish boys, and the impact that had on Jesus of Nazareth as He grew to adulthood.
