Jesus' Day Off


Formats & editions


Jesus is back in another warm, endearing story.
Following on from his wonderful Christmas party it is a few years and a few miracles later and Jesus is ready for a day off. After all, being the saviour of the world can be hard work!

Jesus worked hard to make the world beautiful. He performed miracles, told fabulous stories -all for free and generally spent his time spreading joy and light around the world.
A tiring business, as Jesus had to admit when, one day, he had trouble getting out of bed. And worse -the miracles start to go wrong!
But help is at hand. "Take the day off, Jesus," said the doctor.
"Relax, Have some fun!" So Jesus had some fun but was it worth it? Dad, as usual, has the answer!
