Youth conducts synagogue service

Jesus teaching in the synagogue as a childNAZARETH, AUGUST, AD 9

A somber and noble synagogue service was conducted by fifteen-year-old Jesus ben Joseph yesterday. Jesus selected several passages and read them with dignity. The struggles of his family after the death of his father are well-known throughout the community.

The local gathering seemed particularly touched when Jesus read these words: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness, for I am the Lord your God. And I will hold your right hand, saying to you, fear not, for I will help you.” Chances for the youth to continue his education are not favorable, but the local chazan insists he will be a great teacher one day, perhaps even the successor to the famous Gamaliel of Jerusalem.
