2. Childhood, education
In 24/23 BCE Jesus was born and underwent a typical aristocratic education.
Until he was seven, he lived in the care of his mother and her servants and was looked after with brothers, sisters and other children.
At the age of seven Jesus started at an elementary school at the court of Herod the Great, where he was educated with the sons of Herod and other sons of aristocrats. Here Jesus met Manaen, the later Christian presbyter in Antiochia, Acts 13, 1.
Whereas in his mother’s house Aramaic and Greek were spoken, in the school only Greek was spoken. The syllabus included recitations of Homer and other classical authors of Greek antiquity, reading, writing, calculating, geometry, playing music, and physical education.
