10 Questions for Mary

If I may indulge, I have a few questions for Mary:

What was the look on the shepherds’ faces when they saw Jesus for the first time?

While you were changing Jesus’ diaper, did you ever think, I’m changing God’s diaper . . . ?

Was Jesus a fussy baby?

When it says in Luke that you “pondered all these things,” what was going through your mind?

Was Jesus a rough-and-tumble boy, or was he more a Mommy’s boy?

When you wiped blood from his skinned knee, did you ever catch yourself just staring at it, wondering . . . ?

Did Jesus talk to himself?

Was he popular with the other kids?

Did he ever do clumsy things that all kids do like spill his milk or break a vase?

Did you ever catch him gazing at the night sky with a faraway look in his eyes?

    Hi Mike -Great post. Can you imagine what Joseph thought? I’d like to sit down and talk to both of them when we get to heaven.Blessings,Susan 🙂


  2. Anne Rice wrote a novel about it, actually, a pretty good novel about it — Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt.


  3. Are you at all familiar with the Rich Mullins song “Boy Like Me/Man Like You”? It poses similar questions to Jesus:Did You ever get scared playing hide-and-seek?Did You try not to cry when You scraped Your knee?Did You ever make angels in the winter snow?… It would be great to ask Joseph and Mary about these things.


  4. It would. My four year old just asked me about God as a baby. It was cute and makes you think. Sometimes I forget that human form means human weakness. NOt sin, just ordinary stuff, like diapers and blistered feet.Wonderful post.


  5. Hi Mike, I know some who would think such questions are inane. I’m not one of those. I love musing about what might have been, what our Biblical heros thought, and how they might have felt. In a way, it makes me feel a little bit closer to them.The first manuscript I ever wrote (unpubbed, except maybe in my dreams) was about a quarreling brother and sister transported to ancient Nazareth where they observed Jesus and his brothers as teenagers. I had a blast playing with what-ifs!
