Imagine growing up in the time of Jesus... being part of the world that he lived in...seeing the same sights... sharing the same meals...taking part in the same customs and traditions.
If you could really do that, you would discover that the story unfolds in a lively and bustling community in Palestine, in the time of the Roman empire. There are mothers with noisy babies taking care of the house and preparing meals for their household; fathers working at their trade or on the land; religious teachers worrying about how to lead people to see the difference between right and wrong...and little children playing in the sunshine, looking for something to brighten up the day, flocking to listen to the storytelling preacher with a lively northern accent, the one that people call Jesus.
This book is designed to help you recreate that world with twenty different craft and cooking activities: clothes and food, and familiar objects from home, school and synagogue. Each one is set alongside an episode from the life of Jesus, and the episodes build to provide a complete picture of his life and teaching.
