How Jesus Escaped to Egypt – Definitely one of those moments where a child visualizes a scripture passage … differently from adults
The Sunday after Christmas, the Sunday School teacher told her students about an angel appearing to Joseph in a dream, warning him about danger to the baby Jesus and telling him how to escape from it.
After the story time, the students were given an opportunity to draw a picture about the story.
Most of the pictures were predictable, but Larry’s had an odd element in it. “Larry, I see Joseph and Mary with the baby Jesus on a donkey, but what is that following the donkey?
“It’s the flea, teacher.”
“Flea…? Ah…what flea?” asked the teacher.
To which the boy faithfully repeated the Bible verse, “Take Mary and Jesus and flea to Egypt.” he said. “There’s Mary, there’s Jesus, and there’s the flea.”
