Luke tells about the birth of Christ including details that probably came from Mary. This chapter shows Jesus at the temple shortly after his birth and later, when he was twelve.
Loving in Truth 2 John
Truth without love is brutal; it can be simply callous or cruel. Love without truth is deceptive; it nurtures a sentimental fantasy world.
Look not upon him who was laid in the manger as a babe merely, but in our poverty see him who as God is rich, and … who therefore is glorified even by angels.
– Cyril of Alexandria (376 – 444),
Patriarch in the Egyptian Church
