Jesus the Teenager

Hook: How would you describe the highs and lows of your teen years?

Book: Jesus needed personal development like any other young person. What little is known about His early years is summarized in four statements that describe His maturing process: wisdom (mental), stature (physical), favor with God (spiritual), and favor with man (relational). One can safely assume that He grew in these four areas to prepare for life and ministry.

Took: Why would these four topics provide a potential outline for a self-help book? Which of the four do you need to work on most? What advice do you think Jesus would give you?
