became Flesh – John’s testimony about Jesus
The Early Years
accounts of Jesus’ early life are limited, one remarkable incident
in His boyhood was recorded by Luke. We read that Jesus at the age of
twelve had travelled with His parents for the yearly feast in
Jesus’ Daily LifeIn the years that followed early childhood, there were no other recorded events in Jesus’ life until Luke stated the age at which He began His ministry - “…Jesus Himself began His ministry at about thirty years of age…”Luke 3:23. Yet it was already evident to everyone that Jesus was much more than a great preacher, teacher, or prophet - Matthew 7:28-29. Rather, from His personal testimony, they knew that He was God in the flesh – “I and the Father are one" – John 10:30. Plus, He told His disciples “…He who has seen Me has seen the Father;” - John 14:9. John, His apostle affirmed this truth by saying - "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” John 1:41. The fact is that as Jesus walked the earth manifested in the flesh, it was clear that His divine mission was also to demonstrate the nature and character of God for everyone to see.

Jesus slept when He was weary, ate when He was hungry, conversed with His disciples, prayed daily to God, paid taxes to the Romans, wept with compassion for people, and expressed passion when He rebuked evil. Furthermore, Jesus also experienced the sting of malicious ridicule and false judgment especially by religious people. The Pharisees frequently criticized Him, Jews plotted to kill Him, some disciples betrayed Him, and others even deserted Him. Yet, Jesus never used His divine power or called for heavenly intervention in any of these situations. Instead, He displayed the example of grace and divine forgiveness as in the case of the dying thief, and those who crucified Him – Luke 23:34. Jesus demonstrated God’s infinite love and mercy in every moment of His earthly life. With compassion, He reached out to social outcasts like Mary Magdalene, a prostitute; to Zacchaeus, a notorious tax collector; to the woman with many husbands at the well of
