Bar-Mitzvah.

We are not told mush about the childhood of Yeshua, but there are clues in this account of Him coming to the age of manhood. He was either 12-13 years old when as Ha’Torah required Him to be taken by His parents Mari and Yosef up to Yerushalayim.  Luke 2:42-46, 51.

Many forget very quickly that Beit Lechem was the home of Yosef and His birth place. he had been circumcised in the Temple on the eight day as was required. Yeshua was missing and one the third day they found Him in the Temple teaching, questioning the Rabbis. Luke 2:46-47.

This were perhaps the secret Talmidim Nakdimon and Yosef of Ramatayim, where challenged by this youth. He was setting a seed in them for the end of His life, the stake and the resurrection.  Yohanan chapter 3,.

Matthew/Levi 27:53,   Mark 15:43,   Luke 23:51,   Yohanan 19:38.

Circumcised.

We see that Yeshua as a baby had to be circumcised on the eight day as the Torah required his parents to fulfill. This was the beginning of life time of connection with Har Hek’el.

Unfortunately many ‘Christians over look these events as irrelevant, but we must never do this. Because this shows that He was first a Jew and the Messiah of Ysra’el. While in the Temple, there were two people and man and a woman who had lived to see this day and to prophecy the arrival of the messiah in human form.

We are also given a prophetic utterance by a priest prior to the birth of his son Yohanan the Baptizer, who would be a forerunner of the Messiah being revealed to the world.  Luke 1:5-23,  57-64,  2:21-39,  25-35,  36-37.
