“Now when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord” (Luke 2:22 NKJV). So began the education of the greatest, purest man who ever lived. “And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him. His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover” (Luke 2:40-41 NKJV). By age 12, Jesus knew enough to sit “in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions,” astonishing them “at His understanding and answers” (Luke 2:46-47 NKJV). During the next 18 years, Jesus “was subject to” Joseph and Mary (Luke 2:51). He was “home schooled” with God and His Word uppermost in His life. That worked for Him!
