Luke 2:41-52 Amplified Bible (AMP)
41 Now His parents went to Jerusalem every year for the Passover Feast.
42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem, according to the custom of the Feast;
43 and as they were returning [to [a]Nazareth], after spending the required number of days [at the Feast],
the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem. Now His parents did not know this,
44 but supposed Him to be in the caravan, and traveled a day’s journey; and [then]
they began searching [anxiously] for Him among their relatives and acquaintances.
45 When they did not find Him, they went back to Jerusalem looking for Him [everywhere].
46 Three days later they found Him in the [court of the] temple, sitting among the teachers,
both listening to them and asking them questions.
47 All who heard Him were amazed by His intelligence and His understanding and His answers.
48 When they saw Him, they were overwhelmed; and His mother said to Him,
“Son, why have You treated us like this? Listen, Your [b]father and I
have been [greatly distressed and] anxiously looking for You.”
49 And He answered, “Why did you have to look for Me?
Did you not know that I had to be [c]in My Father’s house?”
50 But they did not understand what He had said to them.
51 He went down to Nazareth with them, and was continually submissive and
obedient to them; and His mother treasured all these things in her heart.
52 And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and in stature, and in favor with God and men.
