Jesus and his parents went to Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of Passover.
On their journey home, Mary and Joseph saw that Jesus was not with them, but they assumed He was with the others they were traveling with.
After a day long journey, Mary and Joseph realized Jesus was still in Jerusalem, so they went back to look for Him.
After 3 days of searching for Him, Mary and Joseph found Jesus in the temple, talking to older doctors and asking them questions.
Mary asked Jesus why He did not come home with them and told Him how troubled she was when she realized He was gone.
Jesus was confused. He thought they would have known he would be doing His father's work, but they did not understand what He meant so Jesus returned back home to Nazareth with them.
