Joseph and Mary moved back to their own
town of Nazareth.
Each year Joseph and Mary would take Jesus to Jerusalem for the celebration of the Passover. When Jesus was 12 years old, they went to Jerusalem as usual
But when their traveling group left
Jerusalem, Jesus stayed behind without his parents knowing it. They
presumed he was somewhere with the group . When they couldn't find him,
After 2 days, they found him, in
the Temple, listening to the religion teachers

He went with them to Nazareth and lived
under their authority.
Jesus, please help all "lost children" to be found!
