Luke 2:49-50 ” Why were you searching for Me He asked. Didn’t you know I had to be in My Father’s house? But they did not understand what He was saying to them.”

I can only imagine Mary and Joseph’s confusion when they finally found their young son sitting in the Temple courts listening to the Teachers of the Law…especially when He gave them such an explanation for His disappearance.  Here was their sweet, obedient, 12 year old talking about the necessity of being in “My Father’s House.”  No wonder they couldn’t comprehend or mentally grasp what He was saying to them.  To them, they only saw a boy who had caused them some anxious moments until they found Him…not the Son of God, Who was going about doing His Father’s business.
