This set of three sculptures portrays an important aspect of life in the Bethlehem of Christ’s birth, the opportunity to learn. The teacher, also known as a Rabbi, sits with scrolls at his side. His face is a picture of patience and wisdom, his arms gesturing with meaning. Before him are two students, listening with rapt attention.
Let us immerse ourselves in the scriptures during this holy season, that we may learn the ways of Christ in our life. Open your Word to our hearts, and our hearts to following our Lord and Savior, in whose name we pray. Amen.
