Luke 2:41-52 describes the Finding in the Temple. At the age of twelve, Jesus joins Mary and Joseph, as well as a large number of their relatives and friends, on a journey to Jerusalem "according to custom" - that is, Passover. On the day of their return, Jesus "lingered," staying at the Temple, but Mary and Joseph assumed he was with the group. Mary and Joseph returned home, but after a day of travel, they realized Jesus was gone, so they returned to Jerusalem, where they found Jesus three days later. He was discovered in The Temple, conversing with the elders. They were astounded by his knowledge, especially given his young age.
