Luke 2 41 – 52

Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover. (Luke 2:41)

When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom. (Luke 2:42)

After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it. (Luke 2:43)

Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. (Luke 2:44)

When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him. (Luke 2:45)

After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. (Luke 2:46)

Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. (Luke 2:47)

When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.” (Luke 2:48)

“Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” (Luke 2:49)

But they did not understand what he was saying to them. (Luke 2:50)

Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. (Luke 2:51)

And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
