2:42 When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the custom.
2:43 After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.
2:44 Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends.
2:45 When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him.
2:46 After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.
2:47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.
2:48 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."
2:49 "Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be in my Father's house?"
2:50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them.
2:51 Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart.
2:52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
