Luke 2:41-52; Mark 6:34
We are not told very much about the early life of Jesus in the Bible. We are told that Mary and Joseph took the Baby Jesus to Egypt when someone was trying to kill the Holy Baby. Then they returned to Israel to the town of Nazareth. Jesus grew in wisdom and strength, and the grace of God was upon Him.
When Jesus was twelve years old, Mary and Joseph took him to Jerusalem. He talked about God with the teachers and leaders of Israel. He listened to them, and asked and answered questions. They were all surprised at his great knowledge of God. When Jesus was about thirty years old, He began to teach people about God. Many people believed his teaching, and He became very well known.
