Taking Examinations

[Written Especially for Young People]

When preparations are being made for examinations and the presentation of reports, as the school term draws to a close, some young student may find himself listening to the suggestion of error trying to convince him that he is not sufficiently prepared, or that he lacks the courage and ability to express himself.

In the second chapter of Luke's Gospel we are told that Jesus, then a boy of twelve, had gone to Jerusalem with his parents, and had quietly remained behind and entered the temple alone. Doubtless there were questions he wanted answered by the learned doctors. And, as the narrative tells us, Joseph and his mother found him there asking and answering questions of these men, who were considered the most highly educated in the law.
