Sinless Childhood of Jesus 9/18/2011Luke 2
One of the major themes in Luke's Gospel is the humanity of Christ. Jesus is presented as fulfilling the Law perfectly. This He does on our behalf. Luke also tells us something of Jesus' childhood, something we find in no other Gospel. Our Lord is presented in His humanity as growing, being strengthened and being filled with wisdom. As with everything else Jesus endured as a human being, He passed through the difficult years of childhood development without sin, giving us victory in that aspect of our lives as well.
