The "lost years"
« on: September 06, 2007, 08:37:40 AM »
What do the Saints or the church say about the "lost" years of Christ between the ages of 13 to 30? (Or even general opinions) My philosophy teacher said he heard a theory that he went and preached in China and the Orient but this is from an existential atheist so just putting the question out there!
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

As far as I know nothing is said about them however I am aware of the idea you mention which I do not believe has any more basis than the false arguments about why the shepherds could not have been in the fields at night.
...because I was not with you when the Lord came aforetime.
...because I am blind and yet I see.
