Jesus From Birth to Adulthood

Introductory Background

  • Urantia Paper 120: The Bestowal of Michael on Urantia (This paper is not found in the New Testament)
  • Urantia Paper 121: The Times of Michael's Bestowal—While this paper is not in the New Testament, there is to be noted in this connection:
  • l. The prologue to John's Gospel (not in the Urantia Papers) John 1:1-18
  • 2. The preface to Luke's Gospel (not in the Urantia Papers) Luke 1:1-4
  • 3. Two genealogies of Jesus (not in the Urantia Papers) Matt. 1:1-17, Luke 3:23-38

Urantia Paper 122: Birth and Infancy of Jesus

  • UP 122:1  Choosing Palestine -- Joseph and Mary. No New Testament Correspondence
  • UP 122:2  Gabriel Appears to Elizabeth   Luke 1:5-25
  • a. Mary visits Elizabeth   Luke 1:39-56
  • b. John's birth, March 25, 7 B.C.  Luke 1:57-80
  • UP 122:3   Gabriel's Announcement to Mary.   Luke 1:26-38
  • "Joshua"--the name Jesus is the Greek form of the Hebrew Yeshua. Yeshua is itself a contraction of the Hebrew name Yehoshua. And Yehoshua in English is Joshua.
  • UP 122:4   Joseph's Dream.   Matt. 1:18-25
  • UP 122:5   Jesus' Earth Parents. No New Testament Correspondence
  • UP 122:6  The Home at Nazareth. No New Testament Correspondence
  • UP 122:7   The Trip to Bethlehem   Luke 2:1-5
  • "In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled. ":Dated papyri in Egypt tell of a 14 year cycle of census inaugurated by the Roman Emperor, Caesar Augustus (27 B.C. : A.D. 14), and record one in A.D. 20. Counting backwards 14 years from A.D. 20 we come to A.D. 6, the date of the census that would have preceded this A.D. 20 census. And other records confirm that a census was indeed held in A.D. 6. Counting backwards 14 more years from A.D. 6 we come to the first census, the one originally decreed by Caesar Augustus, at 8 B.C. This was the census attended by Joseph and Mary. However, because of Jewish opposition to "being numbered" (and paying taxes to Rome) Herod is thought to have been slow in instituting this first census of the Roman World. (Master Study Bible, p. 1330)
  • But it is not likely that Herod would have long delayed this census of "all the world", which was decreed by the Emperor himself. If we assume that Herod held the census the next year we can date Jesus' birth at 7 B.C.
  • This date of 7 B.C. is also consistent with two other recorded events associated with Jesus' birth. Herod (Ch. 7, fn. 1), who was alive at the time of Jesus' birth, died in 4 B.C. (see also Ch. 9, fn. 3). Sometime before his death, in an attempt to kill Jesus, he had killed all babies two years and younger. This suggests a birth date of at least two or three years before Herod's death in 4 B.C. (6 or 7 B.C.). Also, the three extraordinary conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn, which would explain the new "star" in the sky noticed by the Magi (Ch. 7, fn. 2), took place in 7 B.C.
  • The modern calendar is based on calculations made by Dionysus Exegines, a Roman abbot who lived over 500 years after the time of Jesus. Because of insufficient historical data the monk erred in fixing the time of birth and this error persists in our calendar to this day.
  • UP 122:8   The Birth of Jesus.  Luke 2:6,7
  • The angels and the shepherds    Luke 2:8-20
  • "keeping watch over their flock by night."--During the wintertime, from November until April, when pasturage became slim and rain and cold weather threatened, sheep could no longer be kept outdoors and were placed under cover. Since the sheep were out at night it is likely that Jesus' birth occurred in or around the warmer summer months. Thus we may conclude that Jesus was born around the middle of the year 7 B.C., rather than early or late in that year.
  • The wise men.  Matt. 2:1-8
  • The star of Bethlehem.   Matt. 2:9-12    (Note:  Luke 2:21, dealing with circumcision, is not in the Urantia Papers.)
  • "we have seen his star in the East"--The most likely explanation of this new star in the sky concerns the extraordinary triple conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces that took place on three separate nights in 7 B.C. This new bright light in the sky, which would probably have been described as a new "star" appeared on the nights of May 29, September 30, and December 5, 7 B.C.
    This is by far the most popular explanation for the star of Bethlehem. Johannes Kepler, after seeing the Jupiter:Saturn conjunction in Pisces a few days before Christmas in 1603, calculated backward and discovered the 7 B.C. event. But Kepler was certainly not the first to call attention to it. In 1977, David H. Clark and two colleagues quoted a similar assertion in English church annals dating from A.D. 1285." (Sky and Telescope, December 1986, p. 632, Computing the Star of Bethlehem.)
  • "When they saw the star they rejoiced exceedingly. ":This implies that when the wise men left Herod the star reappeared. And this further suggests that they first saw the star in the East and then journeyed to Jerusalem. During this time the star was not to be seen until it suddenly reappeared over Bethlehem following their visit with Herod.
    Knowing the dates of the conjunctions we may reason that the Magi first saw the star the night of May 29, 7 B.C. (the first conjunction). They then made the long journey (probably from Babylon in the East) to Jerusalem; it is estimated that this trip would have taken around three months traveling by camel. The reappearance of the star after the audience with Herod would then correspond to the second major conjunction, which took place around September 30.
    Since the second appearance of the star was immediately followed by the discovery of the baby Jesus we may use the date of the second conjunction (September 30) to approximate Jesus' birth to around August or September, 7 B.C.
  • UP 122:9   The Presentation in the Temple.  Luke 2:22-39
  • UP 122:10   Herod Acts. (Flight to Egypt)   Matt. 2:13-23
  • "Herod the King":Also called Herod the Great. Herod was the son of the governor of Idumea (the area south of Judah). He rose to a high position in the government of Judah during the reign of the aging high priest, Hyrcanus 11. However, Hyrcanus's younger nephew, Antigonus, rebelled against Hyrcanus's rule. Antigonus raised an army in Syria and, securing the help of many Judeans unhappy with Hyrcanus's reign as well as the Parthians to the east, he overthrew Hyrcanus in A.D. 40. Herod fled to Rome, taking his case directly to Mark Anthony, who received Herod as an old family friend. And through the assistance of the Roman rulers Anthony and Octavian he was proclaimed king of Judah by the Roman Senate in 40 B.C. He captured Jerusalem in 37 B.C. from Antigonus and ruled from Jerusalem until his death in 4 B.C. His kingdom eventually expanded beyond Judea and Idumea to include Samaria, Galilee, Gaza, Perea, and the territory east of the Sea of Galilee.
  • "departed for Egypt "--Alexandria was the location of a large Jewish settlement in Egypt and would have been a natural place for them to live during their sojourn there.
  • "according to the time he had ascertained from the wise men."--Probably the time of the first conjunction, May 29, 7 B.C. (see Ch. 7, fn. 3). Calculating backward one and a half to two years we come to the time of Herod's order to kill all babies two years and younger at late 6 B.C. or early 5 B.C.
  • "When Herod died"--The Jewish historian Josephus (who lived in the latter half of the first century A.D.) records the death of Herod (at age 70) shortly before April 12, 4 B.C.
  • "Archelaus reigned over Judea"--Herod died in the spring of 4 B.C. By Herod's final will his son Archelaus was named as ruler over Judea, Samaria, and Idumea. Most of the remainder of Herod's kingdom was divided among his other two sons: Herod Antipas was made ruler over Galilee and Perea, while Herod Philip became ruler over the Transjordan lands of Batanea and Trachonitis.
    Herod Antipas was the man who later ordered the death of John the Baptist. In A.D. 6, Caesar Augustus replaced Archelaus with a series of military prefects. The most famous of these rulers was Pontias Pilate, who was to order Jesus' death.
  • "withdrew to the district of Galilee."--If Jesus' birth is put around August:September, 7 B.C., he would have been around three years old when the family returned to Nazareth after the death of Herod in 4 B.C.

  • "The Great Temptation ":Each of the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) treat the temptation of Jesus somewhat differently. Mark recounts the event in two versus (quoted above). Matthew and Luke tell a detailed story but reverse the order of the second and third temptations. The gospel of John does not mention the event at all.
    Matthew, Mark, and Luke portray the temptation as taking place immediately following Jesus' baptism (when he left the river Jordan and went into the wilderness for 40 days). Certainly, Jesus did retire to the wilderness following John's baptism, but since this baptism marked the beginning of his public career, it is more likely that this was a time of communion with God and deciding upon the procedures to be followed in the coming proclamation of the Kingdom. If this is so, then Jesus' temptation must have occurred before his baptism. This is also consistent with the Father's expression of an approval at Jesus' baptism ("This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased"), which would naturally come after Jesus had met and overcome his "great temptation."

  • "In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar"--Augustus Caesar adopted Tiberius as his son and made him co:emperor in the provinces almost three years before his (Augustus') death in A.D. 14. (Tacitus, Ann. 1,3) Therefore Augustus first year of rule in the provinces would have been around A.D. 11, and the 15th year of Tiberius' rule in the province of Palestine would have been around A.D. 26.
  • "Herod, tetrarch of Galilee"--Herod Antipas was made ruler of Galilee at his father's (Herod the Great) death in 4 B.C. (see also Ch. 9, fn. 4)
  • "Now John wore a garment of camels' hair, and a leather girdle around his waist"--Compare John's mode of dress with the description of the legendary Elijah as found in 2 Kings 1:8: "He wore a garment of haircloth, with a girdle of leather about his loins."

  • "Levites":The descendants of Levi who maintained the temple and the provided temple music. They were also in charge of providing the money changing that took place in the temple courts.
  • "Pharisees":The scribes and rabbis taken together formed a religious party known as the Pharisees. Although they were sticklers for living according to the "law" they were more progressive than the other Jewish religious groups. They held many beliefs not clearly taught in the Hebrew Scripture such as belief in the resurrection of the dead:a doctrine only mentioned by the later prophet Daniel.
  • "Sadducees":The Sadducees were composed of the priests and certain wealthy Jews. They were a Jewish religious party which dominated Judea's highest ruling body:the Sanhedrin. It was principally the Sadducees who plotted and brought about the death of Jesus.
  • John proclaims him "Son of God."  John 1:29-34
  • "Messiah"--In ancient times oils were expensive and were used for ceremonial purposes, as well as to cleanse and protect the skin. Kings were anointed with holy oil at their coronation to show that they were consecrated to God. The term "messiah" comes from the Hebrew "mashi'ah" and means literally anointed
    one.
    The Jews held many conflicting ideas about an expected deliverer, but they agreed he was to be the Messiah, the Anointed One. The rabbis had gathered many passages from scripture which they believed were prophetic of a coming Messiah who would deliver them from bondage and bring about the kingdom of God on earth.
    To the Jews the Messiah was more than a prophet:one who taught God's will or proclaimed the necessity for righteous living:he was to bring about the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth.
    This was to be a righteous Kingdom in which God, through the Messiah, ruled the nations on earth just as he already ruled in heaven. For the Jews, the coming of the Messiah signified the establishment of a divine world government here on earth, with its capital at Jerusalem. The Greek word for Messiah is Christ. The gospels were written in Greek and in this restatement the word Christ is rendered as Messiah, Deliverer, or Christ depending upon the context.
  • "He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."--Here John contrasts his baptism with water, an outward rite, with Jesus' baptism of the Holy Spirit, an inner change of mind and heart under the influence of the Holy Spirit.
  • "Rabbi"--a word used by the Jews as a term of address which meant Master or Teacher.

  • UP 136:2   The Baptism of Jesus.   Matt. 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-22
  • "And when Jesus was baptized":John began his ministry "in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar." (Luke 3: 1). Tiberius ruled in the provinces (including Palestine) for more than two years before the death of Augustus Caesar in A.D. 14. This means that the first year of Tiberius' rule in Palestine would have been around A.D. 11/12 and the fifteenth year of his rule would be around A.D. 26/27. If Jesus were baptized in this first year of John's ministry (as is implied by Luke 3:1-21) and if Jesus were born around August, 7 B.C. (see also Ch. 5, fn. 1) he would have been around 31/32 years old when he received John's baptism.
    This conclusion is consistent with Luke's statement that Jesus was about 30 years old when he began his ministry (which followed soon after his baptism). (Luke 3:23)
  • "Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not."- Here John denies that he is the literal Elijah of old. But why then did he dress in the manner of the legendary Elijah? Just as the Jews believed that the Messiah would come to deliver them they also believed that Elijah the prophet would come to prepare the way for the promised deliverer: "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord; and he shall turn the hearts of the fathers toward their children and the hearts of the children toward their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4:5,6) John must have reasoned that if this prophecy applied to Jesus as the Messiah then he, as Jesus' advance messenger, must be the Elijah of the prophecy. Perhaps this led him to style himself after Israel's first great prophet.
    And indeed Jesus later on affirms that John is the second Elijah in his role as the forerunner of Jesus. (See Matthew 11:10   and Mark 9:11.
  • "Are you the prophet?":The prophet promised by Moses: "The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from among your brethren:him you shall heed." And the Lord said to me, "I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him." (Deuteronomy 18:15, 17, 18)

In the gospels it is used in two ways: in general it refers to a follower of Jesus, but it is also often used to refer specifically to Jesus' apostles :the twelve disciples he ordained and set apart as his personal associates in the proclamation of the gospel
    of the kingdom, eg. "And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority (Matt. 10:1) it is in this more specific meaning that the word is used here.
  • "Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain and when he sat down his disciples came to him":In this context the word disciple is best interpreted as apostle (see fn. 1, above). In other words, in order to get away from others and be alone with his apostles, Jesus went up on a nearby mountain. Here he imparted special instructions to his chosen followers.
    This interpretation makes sense of the fact that the "Sermon on the Mount" contains much more of Jesus' instruction, and on a wider range of subjects, than any other recorded episode. In fact, it may be viewed as a summary statement of Jesus' personal philosophy of living. Such concentrated teaching would hardly have been comprehensible to the general public, and these words are most fittingly viewed as directed exclusively to Jesus's chosen apostles at the time of their ordination as messengers of the gospel of the kingdom. And this interpretation is confirmed by Jesus' statements to the disciples (apostles), "You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world." (Matt. 5:13,14)

  • "they did not grasp what was said"--The apostles still expected Jesus to establish a temporal kingdom on earth with its headquarters at Jerusalem. Thus, they could not comprehend Jesus' announcement that he would die at the hands of the chief priests and scribes.

Jesus would not enter as the warrior king and ruling Messiah expected by the Jews, but rather as a man of peace, fulfilling the spiritual concept of the Messiah.

  • "and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles"--Jesus was crucified in March, A.D. 35. A little more than 30 years later, in 66 A.D., there was a revolt of the Jews seeking to throw off the Roman yolk. The Roman army came against them and in 70 A.D. they broke through the walls, leveled Jerusalem and killed many of its inhabitants. This they did in response to the revolts led by socalled "deliverers". The Jewish historian Josephus recorded the scene: "...one would have thought that the hill itself, on which the temple stood, was seething hot...the blood was larger in quantity than the fire...the ground did nowhere appear visible, for the dead bodies that lay on it, but the soldiers went over heaps of those bodies, as they ran upon such as fled from them. While the [temple] was on fire, everything was plundered that came to hand, and ten thousand of those that were caught were slain; nor was there a commiseration of any age, or any reverence for gravity, but children, and old men ... and priests, were all slain in the same manner."
