The Missing Years of Jesus

Posted on August 2, 2011 at 2:46am 4 Comments

The Christian bible never tells anyone what happened to Jesus from when he was a kid to when the story picks back up at 33. So I have taken the liberty to making up a timeline of the missing years of Jesus. Enjoy!

 

The Missing Years of Jesus

  • Age 5 or 6:  The Bible lifts off of Jesus.
  • Age 7:  Jesus joins the local baseball team, Yahweh’s Fighters.  He was the famous hitter.
  • Age 8:  Jesus hits a baseball into the local bakery in a game of…

Chapter 4 hath arrived!!

Let’s groove tonight!!

 

“The man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have produced a man with the help of the LORD." Next she bore his brother Abel. Abel became a keeper of flocks, and Cain a tiller of the soil.

Hi Andrew, welcome to Think Atheist and thank you for choosing to join the group 'Green Atheists.' Looking forward to learning more about you and your future comments in the green group.

My daughter and I just got back from a rather chilly two week trip to Florida... Much too cold to wear just T-shirts and shorts, we were bundled up the few warm clothes we brought.

You might like to check out my daugter, Allegra's profile page, since you guys are close in age. Plus my nephew Jesse's page as well. He's from Florida too. Keep in touch.
-Peace
