Luke 2:39–52 ESV “2:39 ¶ And when they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth.
2:40 And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom. And the favor of God was upon him.
2:41 ¶ Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover.
2:42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom.
2:43 And when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it,
2:44 but supposing him to be in the group they went a day’s journey, but then they began to search for him among their relatives and acquaintances,
2:45 and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching for him.
2:46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.
2:47 And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.
2:48 And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.”
2:49 And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”
2:50 And they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them.
2:51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart.
2:52 ¶ And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.”
