Good Theology

The peanut and I have been talking a lot about the nativity lately. I tell her about Jesus, his birth and his family. As we get closer to Christmas I hope she will have a better understanding of the real celebration, rather than the man made one.

Anyway, I was quizzing her the other day on what she has learned and here’s how the conversation went…

Me: Who is Jesus’ mom?

Peanut: Mary

Me: Who is Jesus’ dad?

Peanut: God

I was looking for Joseph, but I must say, that is pretty good theology for a 2 1/2 year old!! 🙂

    Just wait until she is 5 and she asks if God is Mary’s husband. That is when it gets tricky. “No, see Joseph was Mary’s husband but God is Jesus’s father…”

    Talk about a “spot-on” answer–though one feels sorry for poor Joseph. They guy does the right thing and always gets left out. I mean, he disappears soon after the temple incident, and doesn’t get anywhere near the praise of Mary.I wonder how he felt, when, probably in Heaven he saw Christ die. Powerful stuff.
