Day 8: Missional Christmas

Eight Schools Inspiring

As Joseph looked at baby Jesus in the manger, undoubtedly he thought of how he would grow up. Knowing that most families in Nazareth did not have the financial means to pay for formal Jewish education, he knew that he and Mary would teach Jesus as much as they knew about the scriptures and Jewish tradition.

Imagine their surprise when they went to the Festival of the Passover in Jerusalem and “lost” the 12-year-old Jesus on the way back. After searching for him, they found him “in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking questions.” It was after this that Mary and Joseph could see that “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” – intellectual, physical and spiritual growth.

“On the eighth day of Christmas, my Lord & Savior sent me:
Eight Schools Inspiring,
