When Jesus is born, there is a lot of attention paid to his birth. Still, life seems normal to him and he seems ordinary to those around him.
Jesus grows up in the protective realm of his mother, visits his father’s workshop, and learns the scriptures. Sometimes he sees his mother staring into the distance, remembering the times not long ago when an angel spoke to her about his birth and life. Because his mother was a virgin on the day of his birth, Jesus’s existence is indisputable evidence of mystery. After Jesus eventually travels to Jerusalem with his parents for the Passover, he transforms into a man who finds himself attracted to a female friend, questions life, and realizes he must pursue his devotion to God. But as he begins to fulfill his destiny, Jesus has no idea of the infinite impact he is about to have on the world.
The Small Scroll is the tale of the life of Jesus Christ that invites others to share in his mind and heart as the most miraculous events in human history unfold. This is a jewel of a book.
