Little is known about Jesus’ childhood, as the Gospels skip from Jesus’ birth to his public ministry. We can imagine that he had an upbringing that was similar to ours, and that is because Jesus is fully man and fully God. Fr. Ken explains that the humanity of Jesus should be a source of hope for us. Jesus truly understands the human experience; he was tempted like us, felt sadness like us, and suffered like us. He had to become human like all of us, so that he would be able to help us.
