He lives in the obscure village of Nazareth, with his large Jewish family, sharing work, worship, trials and comforts. Whispers of a virgin birth have long surrounded him. Those around him wait for some sign of the path he will take, some with awe, others with impatience or incredulity. Yeshua, like any Jewish man of his time, is constantly pressured to marry. Both divine and human, he is not blind to the beauty of the village women. As he struggles with the inevitable demands of his family and the human need for love, we see his resolute obedience to his father.
