41 And His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the festival of the Passover.
42 And when He was twelve years old, they went to Jerusalem according to the custom of the festival.
43 And having finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus remained··behind in Jerusalem, and Joseph and His mother knew it not.
44 But◦ supposing Him to be among those on the way with them, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances;
45 and finding Him not◦, they returned to◦ Jerusalem, seeking Him.
46 And it came to pass, after three days, that they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
47 And◦ all who heard Him were··amazed at◦ His understanding and answers.
48 And seeing◦ Him they wondered; and His mother said◦ to Him, Child, why hast Thou done this to us? Behold◦, Thy father and··I◦ have sought Thee, grieving.
49 And He said◦ to them, Why is it that you have sought Me? Knew◦ you not that I must be in what is My Father’s?
50 And they understood not the saying which He spoke to them.
51 And He came··down with them, and came to◦ Nazareth, and was obedient◦ to them; and His mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in age◦, and in grace with God and men.
