If you had a broadly Christian upbringing, what stories about Jesus stick most in your mind from childhood?

Did you read them in a Bible, hear them from your parents/godparents, or in school assembly or at Sunday school?

Do you plan on sharing them with your kids if they ask about him?

The stories about Jesus loving the unlovable stuck with me the most. He loved where others judged. What a gift of love and compassion to just love the lepers, the women who were shunned, the sick, the poor..... I read them in the Bible, heard them in Sunday school ... My children hear them again in religious ed at school and we discuss them often actually. Especially when the religions founded on the covenant to be Christ-like are behaving in ways that are completely opposite to His example.

I read stories in the Bible and the other LDS(Mormon) scriptures. I learned them in Sunday School and Primary and in our Sacrament Meetings every Sunday.

The ones that stick out the most are his birth and his love for all men whether they were like him, believed him or not. Unconditional love...

If my boys ask questions than other beliefs will always be told alongside what I, personally, believe.

I have a book of parables that I plan on passing down to my daughter. I think the messages in those, of love, caring, acceptance, tolerance are wonderful messages that get lost in a lot of religious teachings nowadays, which is so so sad. That is my perception of Jesus, a man who attempted to teacher others to be accepting and loving, and to not discriminate.

I think they are wonderful messages to instil.
