Gospel of Max Set in Jesus’ Time Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, was born in the city of Bethlehem surrounded by animals in a stable. He was visited by men who had come many miles to see him, to see the king of the Jews. The son of god and the Shepard of man was lying in a manger. It was a not even fit for a peasant ad certainly not fit for a king, but he did not mind. He was then taken to the town of Nazareth where he was then raised. Jesus was raised by his mother Mary and her husband Joseph, who was a carpenter. Jesus spent a lot of time around the temple where he got a small education from the teachers there. Jesus grew up to be a teacher, miracle worker and a storyteller. In those days, John the Baptist was preaching in Judea. Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan and to John and asked to be baptised by him. [Matthew 3:14-15] John would have prevented him saying “I need to be baptised by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfil all righteousness.” Then he consented.

And she said to him, “Rabbi!” And Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to the others and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father, and your Father, to my God, and your God.” So Mary Magdalene went to the disciples and said unto them, “I have seen our Lord walk the earth again!” and also told them which Jesus had told her to say.
