Here We Attempt To Illustrate What Happens With Respect To The Life Of Jesus

Place Of Annunciation

This is where Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary. On learning that Mary was pregnant, Joseph being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, and convinced him to stay.

Place of Growth

And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man(Luke 2:52).

His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of Passover and one day at the age of 12, they went up according to custom. When the feast was over, Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem without the knowledge of his parents. After a day's journey they couldn't find him among friends and went back looking for him, they found him among teachers of the law in the temple listening to them and asking them questions. When asked by his mother, he said "How is it that you sought me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father' house?"

He went back with them to Nazareth, was obedient to them and his mother kept all these things in her heart.

Place of Rejection

While at Nazareth, he went to the synagogue, as his custom was, on the sabbath day. He read from the scripture

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind. to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. (Isaiah 61:1-2)

And he continued to say that no prophet is acceptable on his own country
