That’s what someone might think when they study our Bible lesson this week. Mary and Joseph travel more than a day before they realize that Jesus is nowhere to be seen. To be fair, the specific way that groups traveled around back then probably led to this bizarre scenario.
The more important detail of the Bible story is where Jesus actually was. He was in the temple conversing with the religious leaders. It was time for him to be about his Father’s business.
Take time this week to work through this lesson well. It’s the only record we have Jesus’ childhood.
