The Lost Years of Jesus: Documentary Evidence of Jesus’ 17-Year Journey to the East: Amazon. Guide — SBS The missing years of Jesus Apr 21, 2017 — There’s a serious gap in the bible that omits almost 20 years of Jesus’ life. Choose an option, 8×10 Double Matted Paper, 12. Join historians as they attempt to solve one of the world’s greatest biblical mysteries — the missing years of Jesus. Levi was a protestant minister who lived in the USA during the 1800’s who prayed for 40 years to be shown the «missing 18 years» of Jesus’ life.
Most Christians are unaware of it, but the New Testament contains no information about where Jesus was, or what he was doing, from the age of 12 to the beginning of his ministry at age 30. Indeed, the weight of new material suggests that Christ remained in Britain for several years before eventually returning to his homeland in the east. THE four Gospels, written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, tell of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Enter the characters you see below Sorry, we just need to make sure you’re not a robot. There are many theories about this period missing from the bible pages. Where was he during this time and what was he doing? To me the issue of the missing years is moot compared to the bigger question of where is the Gospel of Jesus itself. If Jesus desired an account of his own life you think he would have just written it himself thus eliminating any confusion caused by conflicting multiple accounts.
But I guess that is another story. You ought to understand that Jesus is the very Word. He needs not write no book for He is the book, the Word made flesh. And all that we need have been penned down for us. How well have you taken advantage of that which is written. Why do people search for what is not lost. Before God, some things are more needful than others. He has given us what is needful, make do with it.

God is the author of the Bible. What’s Real Name Of Jesus Christ? The ‘Lost’ Years Among history’s most fascinating mysteries is the Bible’s silence about Jesus Christ’s early life. In the gospel of Mark, for instance, Jesus springs into the story as a thirty-year-old man being baptized and beginning His life’s work of preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God. Matthew and Luke, however, tantalize us with a scene or two of His early years, but hardly enough to satisfy enquiring minds. But when heard that Archelaus was reigning over Judea instead of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there.
And being warned by God in a dream, he turned aside into the region of Galilee. And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, «He shall be called a Nazarene. His intention here is to show that Jesus, unlike the gods and demigods of paganism, experienced the normal process of growth—both physically and mentally—that every human does. The large company of His relatives travel for a whole day before Joseph and Mary realize Jesus is not among them. He was aware early on of both His mission and His true ancestry. Following this, Luke provides another insight or two: «Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart. In the next verse, Luke notes again that Jesus continued to mature. It is as if he is telling us, «Despite confounding the rabbis at age twelve, Jesus only became smarter, wiser, bigger, and stronger, and on top of all that, everyone—and I mean everyone—loved Him!
The beloved physician leaves us with the sense that Jesus’ early years were pleasant, exciting, and full of experiences designed to bring Him to maturity in every facet of life. Finally, the gospel writers drop incidental details about His family and life before His ministry. For instance, Matthew 13:55-56 contains the puzzled questions of Nazarenes dumbfounded by Christ’s preaching: «Is this not the carpenter’s Son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? Joseph’s normal occupation, then, was as a carpenter, a builder, probably one who worked in both stone and wood.
Jesus, as most firstborn sons, would likely follow in His father’s trade. As such, He was undoubtedly a well-formed, strong, and fit Man, used to the heavy toil of construction. The villagers’ wonder regarding Jesus teaching and works also hint that He had not flaunted His wisdom, lineage, or power during His youth, or the small-town gossips would have spread it about. These verses also reveal that He and His family were well known in the town, to the point that everyone knew their names. In addition, His family was a large one: He had four half-brothers that we know of and at least two half-sisters. The natural reading of the Greek is that these were real brothers and sisters, children of Joseph and Mary, not cousins or older children of Joseph by an unknown first wife. Very little outside of late tradition and supposition can be ascertained about Jesus’ early years. Yet, what little is known points to a thorough preparation for His wonderful ministry and supreme act of redemption.
