His Unknown Youth by Raymond A. Foss

We are never really told
the story of his unknown youth
most of his life a mystery
Called to the water
to the Jordan, to John
cleansed and commissioned
before the days of trial alone.
Never told of his life
the babe with the gifts
a fugitive fleeing into Egypt
the youngster in the temple
staying behind in His father’s house
All that is known of most of his life,
thirty years gone.
Only important, the time in ministry
after the water, the dove
healing, teaching,
all leading to the cross.

May 29, 2009
title May 23, 2009
about the unknown childhood and adulthood
of Jesus Christ, until he was 30 years old
and began his 3-year ministry
