Young Jesus of NazarethUnknown - 1999
During the early years of Christianity, tales of Jesus' youth flourished--from his childhood play & schooling to his early ability to heal the sick. Today, these wonderful stories are largely unknown. With this lush book, which begins with the nativity & ends with Jesus' earliest teachings, Marianna Mayer splendidly revives many of them. Illustrated with the works of such masters as Caravaggio & da Vinci, here is a stunning portrait of a boy at once ordinary & extraordinary, human & divine.
