FAMILY OF THREE. What was Jesus like as a child? The New Testament is vague about this period, including only a few episodes from his childhood, but this did not stop stories from cropping up in apocryphal works and artistic renderings. In The Holy Family with a Lamb by Raphael (housed in El Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain), Jesus is pictured with his parents, Mary and Joseph, and a lamb.
