Jesus’ young life

Flight into Egypt


Matthew 3:23-26
23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

24 And it came to pass that Jesus grew up with his brethren, and waxed strong, and waited upon the Lord for the time of his ministry to come.

25 And he served under his father, and he spake not as other men, neither could he be taught; for he needed not that any man should teach him.

26 And after many years, the hour of his ministry drew nigh.


Luke 2:39-40
39 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee to their own city, Nazareth.


40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, being filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.
Luke 2:41-43
41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.


42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem, after the custom, to the feast.
Luke 2:44-50
44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among his kindred and acquaintance,


45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.


46 And it came to pass, after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, and they were hearing him, and asking him questions.


47 And all who heard him were astonished at his understanding, and answers.


48 And when his parents saw him, they were amazed; and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? Behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.


49 And he said unto them, Why is it that ye sought me? Knew ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?


50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
Luke 2:51-52
51 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them. And his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.


52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
