Passover in Jerusalem attracts record crowds

Boy Jesus carries a sacrificial lamb

JERUSALEM, APRIL 8, AD 7

Crowds of visitors from all parts of the Roman Empire have thronged to Jerusalem for the annual feast of the Passover. This afternoon, arriving pilgrims scrambled to make accommodations for their stay in Jerusalem. Several visitors were interviewed. One family from Nazareth brought their nearly 13-year-old son to see the great city and temple for the first time since his infancy. His name is Jesus ben Joseph, and he gave some unexpected answers when we asked his impressions. Although the lad seemed appropriately impressed by the temple, he seemed confused about the tradition of sacrificing animals to “appease” the “Father in Heaven” as he refers to God. Before he could comment further, his parents whisked him away.
