John Edward Robinson was born and raised in Cicero, Illinois, a blue-collar, Mafia-tinged area on the west edge of Chicago, in 1943. He was the third of five children, and grew up with two parents, an alcoholic father and a disciplinary mother. When he was 13, in the fall of 1957, his mother enrolled him in a five-year academy for Catholic boys in downtown Chicago. That same fall he made the rank of Eagle Scout and flew to London to lead a group of 120 Boy Scouts onto the stage of the Palladium theater. There, he appeared in a performance before Queen Elizabeth II and even met movie star Judy Garland. He was a teenage star briefly, all thanks to his mother, Alberta, who was his biggest supporter.

Introduction In the book by Christopher J.H. Wright, Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament, the author argues the very existence of Jesus Christ in the New Testament is portrayed within the Old Testament.

(v.17)
