Jill is joined by Sharon Betsworth, professor of religion and director of the Wimberly School of Religion at Oklahoma City University, to discuss Luke 2:41-52. In this passage Jesus is found learning in the Temple at 12 years old. They discuss Jesus' understanding of his vocation, the nature of childhood in the ancient world, and questions of Luke's understanding of Jesus' divinity.
