Did Jesus smile? Or laugh? Or simply have fun?

In Mel Gibson’s movie The Passion of The Christ there is a scene of Christ as a young man laughing and engaging in horse play with His mother. Is that accurate? I don’t know for sure but I don’t believe so.

Scripture does tell us that He expressed emotion; He wept (over the death of Lazarus, and Jerusalem), and He became angry and threw the money lenders out of the temple. But nowhere do we read that He smiled, laughed or joked. On the contrary, Isaiah 53:3 (NASB) tells us He was “a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.”

I personally believe His sorrow and grief was because this, the world in which we live, is not as it was supposed to be. But fear not, He will make all things new !!!
