Jesus, the Son of God was born to His mother Mary in Bethlehem. His earthly parents, Mary and Joseph raised Jesus and He grew up as a child just as we do. Jesus was without sin, yet He lived as one of us. Living amongst us He experienced life on earth, understood our lives and who we are and also set an example as to how we should live. How amazing it is, that the Son of God came to earth for a wonderful purpose, to give His life for us. Raised from a child to becoming a man, all part of the heavenly Father’s plan because He loved us that much.
