    Jesus was also learning the words that comes from the Father at 12 yrs he was sharing the word's with Rabbai's . Jesus himself is the word of God he was given to us not to condemn but to fulfill the Scripture s . We must be Rejoice always as VICTORY HAS COME. I PRAISE YOU JESUS AND LOVE YOUR WORDS AND I WILL KEEP THEM UNTIL RAPTURE.AMEN

    Jesus was given by God to us because of his love . John 3:16 for God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son Jesus Christ whoever believes in him shall not be perish but have everlasting life amen. What a faithful and loving God we serve. Jesus took our sins pain and worries on the cross he paid the price for us it is finish. Lets keep praising Jesus for everything he have done. Amen

    Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

    Luke surely was a man of great knowledge because he know how the people would react to unusual events and that word would be spread very rapidly which would ignite the explosion necessary for God plan to be implemented.

    as a mother who tends to be talkative, I am challenged by MARY'S example in verses 19 and 51 of Luke 2:she stored these things in her heart and often pondered them. that i may be more meditative than talkative!
    Mary and Joseph fulfilled all the requirements of the law for baby Jesus; and He lived a life of obedience and submission to His earthly parents(51).JESUS was the personification of grace

    The shepherds got a fantastic piece of news!!! I believe that after seeing the Christ, in their excitement, must have noised it abroad right there in Bethlehem. But guess what??? The peiple Having ears they listened but didn't really hear.....scriptural...
