I must be in my Father’s house

Jews were expected to travel to Jerusalem for the high feasts each year (Passover, Pentecost, Tabernacles). Jesus undoubtedly travelled with his parents every year from Nazareth to Jerusalem for the feast of Passover. This eighty mile journey normally took three days. So, families often travelled in large groups, for safety and comfort. Luke records a remarkable incident which happened when Jesus went up to the temple at Jerusalem for his first Passover at the dawn of his manhood (usually the age of twelve for Jewish males). It was at this key turning point in his earthly life that Jesus took the name “father” from Joseph and addressed it to God his Father in heaven. His answer to his mother’s anxious inquiry reveals his confident determination to pursue his heavenly Father’s will. ‘Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?’ (Luke 2:49)

I'm simply a computer geek who has been in that industry for a couple of decades now and loves living in Brixham since moving here a little over ten years ago. I'm helping out with this site and will do all I can to make it successful. I have lots of fun ideas but I'm sure that you do to, so let's have them please... No, seriously let us know what you would like to see and the sorts of thing you want this site to be capable of doing (making coffee excluded, I've been trying to do that for years)
