Have you ever wondered about the “lost years” of Jesus’ life? The eighteen years after he left the Temple at age 12, until he began his public ministry at age thirty? All we know is that he lived a quiet life in Nazareth with Mary and Joseph.
What was he like to live with every day? What wisdom did he give to those closest to him (physically, emotionally and spiritually)?
It was these questions that prompted me to write Walk With the Master, a story set during those “lost years.” A study guide has also followed, called The Faithful Companion Guide. Both books are written from the viewpoint of a dog named Barnabus who was fortunate enough to live at the same time, in the same place as Jesus. And from that perspective, we can catch a glimpse into what it might have been like to sit at Jesus’ feet everyday.
This blog was created to share the news – that you can be friends with Jesus! He longs for an intimate, personal relationship with you. He waits for you to say “Yes” and take just one step towards him. Even though you may be a toddler in your faith, that one tentative step toward the Master will make all the difference in your world.
Because he will accept you with open arms, and your sins will be washed away.
Walk With the Master, for he will lead you home.
