Boy Jesus at the Temple


Bible 1
Now Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem every year for the feast of the Passover.
Bible 2
When He was twelve years old, they went up according to custom.
Bible 3
But when the feast was over, as they were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, but (because they assumed that He was in their group of travellers) they went a day’s journey.


Bible 4
Then they began to look for Him among their relatives and acquaintances.
Bible 5
When they did not find Him …
Bible 6
… they returned to Jerusalem to look for Him.


Bible 7
After three days they found Him in the temple courts…
Bible 8
… sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard Jesus were astonished at His understanding and His answers.
Bible 9
When His parents saw Him, they were overwhelmed. His mother said to Him, ‘Child, why have you treated us like this? Look, your father and I have been looking for you anxiously.’


Bible 10
But He replied, ‘Why were you looking for me? Didn’t you know that I must be in my Father’s house?’
Bible 11
Yet His parents did not understand the remark He made to them. Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them.


Bible 12
But His mother kept all these things in her heart.
Bible 13
And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature, and in favour with God and with people.
