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.Was this review helpful?
