Luke 2:49 ” ‘Why were you searching for Me?’ He asked. ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in My Father’s House?’ “

The twelve year old Jesus had traveled with His parents and a large group of people to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover, but was somehow left behind in the journey home. In their desperate search, His parents found Him days later in the Temple debating with the Teachers of the Law. When Jesus asked them these questions He wasn’t doing it out of disobedience…it was more out of surprise or amazement …something like, “Where else do you think I’d be?” For to this young Jesus He was simply being about His Father’s business. Something that had been planned before the beginning of time and assigned to Him solely. For Jesus had been sent to earth as the only one who could perfectly accomplish His Father’s Will.
