<![CDATA[Imagine being Jesus. You know from an early age, perhaps as soon as you are old enough to reflect upon your existence and being, that you have a divine destiny. By age 12 you are confounding the scholars of the Mosaic Law with your questions and understanding of Scripture. You know you are different. Your mother and father come looking for you, and after three days they find you in the temple interacting with the teachers of the Law. When your mother finally finds you, after a frantic search through Jerusalem, she scolds you saying, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously” (Lk.2:48).]]>
