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…”

    Found your blog while clicking around.So cute. Our son loves the baby Jesus. I hope that he is able to see beyond the presents and really see that we are celebrating the birth of our savior.

    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.
