LK 2:42 And when they had fulfilled [finished WU] the days [of the feast WU], as they returned, the child Jesus tarried [stayed] behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

LK 2:44 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. LK 2:45
And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors [teachers], both hearing them, and asking them questions. LK 2:46 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. LK 2:47 And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with [treated] us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing [anxiously]. LK 2:48 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist [know WU] ye not that I must be about my Father's business [in my Father's house WU]?
