Future Doctors of medicine. Doctors of law. Clerks. Carpenters. Shop owners. Sheep herders. Tailors. Fathers. Rabbis. Teachers. Scientists. Bellhops. Painters. Photographers. You name it. But here in song, we see a young man and his brethren, no girls mind you. (no complaints please, ever heard of the girl scouts?)
Remember the Lord as a youth in the temple, among the elders, both hearing them and asking questions? Ah yes, questions for the ages, steeped in the truth of scripture. Let’s talk about the passover, law, and grace, mercy and judgment.
But here, students of the Torah, and such heated arguments were met daily with the Lord. ‘How can David’s son be David’s Lord?’ ‘How can a man heal on the sabbath?’ And no doubt the back and forth was well-known. ‘Never a man spake like this………..’
Ah yes, there came a point when from that time forward……….no man dared ask Him a question.
But I really like this young man Motty, and the tradition he inspires for learning, dating thousands of years.
Do tell of a reason or two if you find it hopeful or inspiring.
