"Jesus the Carpenter"
There have been many carpenters in our time,but the most famous probably didn't make a dime.This
young man named Jesus was born long ago,Mary and Joseph were his earthly parents,as you well know.
Our Father in heaven looked down from above,he saw sin and decided we needed more love. So he chose Mary the Virgin to bear his only son,he was to live on earth until his work was done.
When he was twelve years old,he started to preach,he had a very big job with so many people to reach. He performed many miracles in his day,and was truly a great man,the prophets did say.
His mission on earth was very hard indeed,he preached God's love and how he cared for your needs. He knew before long he would die on the cross,many showed no pity,but for Mary and others it was a great loss.
Jesus' days on earth finally came to an end,when he was crucified by the Roman men. But three days later he arose from the grave,for the sins of the world his life he gave!
