Boy Jesus Teaching in the Temple
By: Rachel Barrett
Description: This image of 12-year-old Jesus shows him teaching in the Temple, amazing the scholars and the priests. The account of Jesus being left behind in Jerusalem appears in Luke 2:41-50. When Mary and Joseph found Jesus, they were anxious and asked their son what he was doing in the temple. He answered, "Why did you seek me? Did you not know that I must be about my Father's business?"
