41 His parents went to lJerusalem mevery year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the ncustom of the feast. 43 When they had finished the odays, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And 3Joseph and His mother did not know it; 44 but supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances. 45 So when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46 Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And pall who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48 So when they saw Him, they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.”
51 Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was 4subject to them, but His mother tkept all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus uincreased in wisdom and stature, vand in favor with God and men.
