Starting him young! Jill Dillard shared a photo of 2-month-old son Israel snuggled up with dad Derick Dillard for a bedtime story — and it turns out the little tot is starting his religious education already!

"#bibletime with papa," the 24-year-old reality TV star captioned the peaceful Instagram picture, which showed little Israel dressed in a blue and white onesie, looking totally transfixed with his bedtime story.

It's been a difficult time in the Duggar household recently, after it was revealed that Josh Duggar had molested five young girls when he was 14 years old, including his sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar.

But while the two Duggar sisters initially took a step away from social media, choosing instead to speak out about the situation with Fox News' Megyn Kelly earlier this month, the duo are now making slow steps back into the public world.

In addition to baby Israel's bible time photo, proud mom Jill shared another snap last Sunday marking Israel's 2-month birthday. Jessa has shared three photos in the past week via Instagram — two sonogram pictures of her unborn baby and one 20 week bump snap.

During their sit-down chat with Kelly, both sisters were clear about their support for their brother, Josh, despite calling his actions "very wrong." "I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying," Jessa told Kelly during the conversation. "I’m like, ‘That is so overboard and a lie really.’ I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”
