Overview

The Bible tells us of Jesus' birth and of His being in the temple in Jerusalem when He was a boy of 12. But then there is no further mention of Him until about 20 years later when He starts His ministry.
 
Where was He? Why did the Bible not say?
 
Mr. Parks found where God gave instructions, through His Prophets, for the preparation of a place in the wilderness for His Son Jesus. The instructions were followed. A place was prepared. And it was at this place in the wilderness that God's human Son was secluded during his formative years. It was there that Jesus prepared to become the Messiah.
 
Mr. Parks learned how and to whom God gave the instructions of exactly what to teach His Son. He learned the reason for secrecy of the whereabouts of Jesus during this period of seclusion. He found ruins of the school, and from fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient documents, he pieced together the schoolbooks that Jesus studied.
 
The book describes all of these events and shows photographs of the ruins, illustrations of computer re-constructions of the school as it appeared when Jesus was there, and presents the "lessons" taught to Jesus. The lessons are presented in both Hebrew as found in the scrolls and in the English translations. These lessons are then compared to the teachings of Jesus as documented in the four Gospels of the Bible.
 
This has all been documented in a 304 page book with 71 original illustrations in a 6 X 9 Perfect Bound Paperback with beautiful 4 color-laminated covers.

What People Are Saying

James Brooke
In Jesus: His School Years, Mr. Parks cleverly weaves together facts from these ancient historical and religious documents, along with recent archaeological findings and present-day religious beliefs, to provide a new and credible theory of where Jesus was during the so called "missing years" - the previously undocumented time of Jesus' life between the age of 12 and about 30. Not only does Mr. Parks demonstrate where Jesus was, but also why He was there, what He was doing during this time, and how it affected His teachings and the teachings of His disciples.
Richard Fuller
For those of you who wonder about his life between twelve and thirty, Jesus: His School Years is a must-read. Scholar and author Walter Parks has searched beyond the bible to learn where Jesus was and what He was doing during this time. Using the scattered, non-biblical facts available, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls and texts from ancient writers, Mr. Parks weaves a story of supposition that fills in the blanks and offers the reader an intriguing and emotional understanding of the human we know as Jesus. Walter Parks has given us a fascinating look at what might have been. Jesus: His School Years, in this reviewer's opinion, is a revealing, easy-to-read look at the transition of a twelve year old boy to the Messiah!
Sherry Russell
Mr. Parks masterfully peals back the layers of research to reveal fascinating and convincing information unveiling the curious mystery of where Jesus was from the age of 12 through 30. Jesus: His School Years hits the bull's eye of facts with the engaging explanation of how Jesus mastered his calling and how he metamorphoses from the human baby into the Messiah.

    Brilliant and fresh - a must read!

    Mr. Parks masterfully peals back the layers of research to reveal fascinating and convincing information unveiling the curious mystery of where Jesus was from the age of 12 through 30. ¿Jesus: His School Years¿ hits the bull¿s eye of facts with the engaging explanation of how Jesus mastered his calling and how he metamorphoses from the human baby into the Messiah. The research uncovers that Jesus and John the Baptist were schooled together by the Essenes. The Essenes were one of four principle sects and were thought to be saintly and ¿athletes of virtue¿. In discussing the personal beliefs of the Essenes verses the power base of the Pharisees, the author states that certain rabbis were ¿torn between expressing his real beliefs and his desire to be part of the most powerful sect¿. This strangely reflects on how many believe today making the reader wonder if human nature ever changes. In the twelve easy to read chapters you learn or revisit your thinking about the star of Bethlehem, Jesus¿ actual birth date, the relationship between John the Baptist and Jesus and the role of the Essenes.
