Poems

TWELVE

Dec 2018    

Not yet a teenager
but holding a pride of scholars,
Pharisees and Sadducees
spellbound in the temple
in Jerusalem—men of letters and good standing
who prized their scholarship above all.
How could he at twelve engage them,
greybeards admired for erudition,
in learned discourse
bringing profundity, knowledge and insight
into issues seminal to life, creation,
the nature and character of God,
the Law, the Books of Moses
and the coming revelation?
Speaking with such authority and authenticity
as architect and engineer of all creation,
he opened windows of mystery and enigma,
giving answers beyond the reach of human scholarship,
for three whole days,
until Mary and Joseph
at their wit’s end
found him “about His Father’s business”.

Luke 2:41—52 NKJV
