Turning the Frantic Family into A Fulfilling Family

Today’s Scripture is the story where Jesus found himself lost in his Father’s house

This is the only story we have of Jesus from the time of his birth until he goes to see John the Baptist. It appears in no other gospel. The scripture begins as Joseph and Mary leave the temple with the infant Jesus and return to Nazareth.

When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

When Jesus was 12 his parents found him at the temple.
