Jesus ben Joseph graduates

Jesus graduatesNAZARETH, MARCH 20, AD 7

Jesus ben Joseph graduated today from the synagogue-associated local school. His proud father, a local contractor, traveled from his public building project in Sepphoris to be present at the event. Jesus, the firstborn of Joseph and Mary, was pronounced “son of the commandment.” The elders of the synagogue generally expressed their pride in the lad and said he would be an excellent candidate for the Hebrew academies of Jerusalem. Jesus is considered by some to have been designated for an important mission. A few of the elders were reported to have reservations, one commenting: “Jesus must learn more respect for tradition. His many questions sometimes border on being annoying and lack appreciation for our laws and standards. I must admit he has an extraordinary mind and is conversant in three languages.” The elder requested that his name be withheld.
