THE GOOD MESSAGE OF
JESUS THE CHRIST
Interpretation

9. Jesus in the Temple at Age Twelve.

The inherent wisdom within Jesus awakened as he grew. By the time he was twelve he was aware of his direct relationship with God and the nature of his work. He was extremely intelligent and had studied the scriptures enough to amaze the teachers in Jerusalem. When his mother complained to him, he knew he was where he was supposed to be and indicated to her why. Nevertheless he obeyed his parents and did not resist their commands.
