Coming of Jesusby Gayle C. Felton
The Coming of Jesus will help learners gain a deeper understanding of Jesus through a careful look at the setting into which he was born. Events included are: the Old Testament prophecies of a Messiah, Jesus' birth foretold to Zechariah, Mary's visit to Elizabeth, Joseph visited by the angel, the appearance by the shepherds and then the Magi, the Temple rituals for the newborn baby boy, and the flight to Egypt and return to Nazareth.
In addition, the text will explore some of the traditions that deal with Jesus' "hidden" years and will describe the physical, cultural, and religious surroundings in which Jesus was raised.
