Q: Where was and what was Jesus doing during the 13 years of his life that seem to always be in question?
A: Are there only 13 years in question? It seems to me that there are a lot more years than that which are unaccounted for.
The Urantia Book more than makes up for any missing years in the Master’s life. The final section of The Urantia Book is devoted entirely to the life and teachings of Jesus, from his birth, through his babyhood, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and into his ministry, including Holy Week, and culminating with Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection, and all of his resurrection appearances. We see Jesus as he interacts with his parents, his friends, the Jewish authorities, and his apostles and disciples. For the most complete accounting of Jesus’ life, Part IV of The Urantia Book will answer all of your questions. It is a most satisfying and edifying read, unparalleled anywhere.
In addition, Truthbook has put together a wonderful new feature called “Great Jesus Stories.” In Great Jesus Stories, we have isolated just the stories from Part IV. There are more than 350 stories of Jesus’ life: his daily activities, his childhood friends, his sorrows, joys and adventures as a boy, and his eventual dawning consciousness of who he was and what he was meant to do on this earth. In these stories, we see Jesus in his appealing humanness, and his inspiring Divinity. All of these stories were taken verbatim from Part IV of The Urantia Book, arranged for easy reading, and illustrated with the best of world-class fine art. I hope you’ll have a look. All the Great Jesus Stories are also contained in Part IV; reading either one will help you understand where Jesus was and what he was doing through ALL the years of his life in Earth.
Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it. 196:1.3
