44they thought that he was with the group, so they traveled a whole day and then started looking for him among their relatives and friends.45They did not find him, so they went back to Jerusalem looking for him.46On the third day they found him in the Temple, sitting with the Jewish teachers, listening to them and asking questions.47All who heard him were amazed at his intelligent answers.48His parents were astonished when they saw him, and his mother said to him, “Son, why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been terribly worried trying to find you.”
49He answered them, “Why did you have to look for me? Didn't you know that I had to be in my Father's house?”50But they did not understand his answer.
51So Jesus went back with them to Nazareth, where he was obedient to them. His mother treasured all these things in her heart.52 Jesus grew both in body and in wisdom, gaining favor with God and people.
