From the Manger to the Cross

Can anyone tell me (in a compressed version), their take on Jesus' life between birth in the manger and death on the cross?

bestwishes,cf

or some would believe. You can see him everywhere. Miracles are all arould us, babies born, near but not quite death experiences, people paying over $3.00 for a gallon of gas,,ect...
My advice is to read the new testament--I think it's got the jump on all the others.

From what we know, Jesus lived an ordinary life until he entered his ministry at around age 30. We don't know because, except for what has been recorded in the NT, and until Jesus called his apostles and asked them to write, nothing much was written. So while what we have might be considered documented and official, we have to believe Jesus lived a life that was full to overflowing with acts of kindness, good deeds, travel, and influence for 30 years previous, while in his prime.

Most of what has been recorded actually took place during one week of his life, referred to by some as "the greatest week in history". That week where at the beginning he rode into the city of Jerusalem thronged by followers and believers, until at the end of the week he was betrayed and murdered. But, since that was the pivotal point in history it stands to reason that it would be written about and documented, with focus. I mean, crucifixion was a common practice. How many others do you recall reading about in such detail? Only one. The one who rose from the dead 3 days later, as He instigated the resurrection. Before that time not one person who lived and died was resurrected. Again, it is documented that at the time of Jesus resurrection, many others (the people who believed and tried to live their life according to God's will) also were resurrected and exalted (changed) as Jesus was. Fortunately this record (the NT) has endured time in many translations, the German being the most correct, but all are significant. And, I might add, the Book of Mormon records the visit of the resurrected Jesus to the Americas, so it is another witness to the truthfulness of the New Testament. http://scriptures.lds.org/3_ne/contents

(people of my faith believe)
The greatest mistake one can make in assessing Jesus life is to think of it as beginning with his birth in the manger and ending at the time of his death. That period of time is miniscule, just a milisecond compared to his literal existance (and yours and mine). But that milisecond has had a greater effect than any other on you and I.

graves were open, rose from the dead, resurrected, all mean the same thing. I'm not clear on your question.

rayww

I re-read your synopsis (which I very very much appreciate) re: Jesus' resurrection. I see that you did say there 'were others' resurrected and exalted (changed).

When I first read it, somehow I thought you said that he was 'the only one resurrected'.(duh?)

Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me.

love,cf

You're very welcome. What was it that got you thinking and inspired you to ask for a brief synopsis of Jesus life?
