The Early Years Of Jesus
The Boyhood Years Of Jesus
04.06.00.A. JESUS AND TEMPLE LEADERS. Artwork by William Hole of the Royal Scottish Academy of Art, 1876. At the age of 12, Jesus challenges the religious leaders in the temple with stimulating questions. Among the doctors of the law, there may have been Rabbi Hillel and his rival Rabbi Shammai, two of the most famous rabbis of the Second Temple Period (516 B.C.-A.D. 70). The octagon-shaped architectural style of the building depicted is attractive, but incorrect.
