This well-researched book depicts the Jewish and Roman culture of the time while it journeys along with Jesus as he works--and wonders--and learns about his relationship with his Father and grows into a man eager to help people understand their relationship to God and love Him as much as Jesus does. His work and his relationships with his family, including his cousin John, and friends and the many people he meets and helps along the way are well thought out, and I felt a real connection with the boy as he grew up and learned about the Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, fishermen and publicans, the temples, and gradually learned how to speak to the common man with stories and thoughts that they could understand, while talking with his Father and having to wait patiently until he was ready to fulfill his mission. This felt so real to me, and will quite possibly be the closest we come to knowing the young Jesus.
