And he had received an answer from the Holy Spirit that that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple, and when His parents brought in the child Jesus to do for Him according to the custom of the Law, and he took Him into his arms and blessed God and said, "Now you are dismissing your servant, O Lord, in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared before the face of all peoples; a light for revelation to the Nations, and the glory of your people Israel." And His father and mother were marveling at the things which were spoken concerning Him.
And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, "Behold, this child is set for the falling and the rising of many in Israel and for a sign of contradiction (and a sword will pierce your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."

And His parents went every year to Jerusalem at the feast of the Passover. And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, and Joseph and His mother did not know, but supposing Him to be in the company, they went a day's journey, and were searching for Him among their relatives and among their acquaintances; and when they did not find Him they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking Him.
And it happened that after three days they found Him in the temple sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and questioning them, and all who heard Him were amazed at His understanding and His answers.
And when they saw Him, they were astonished, and his mother said to Him, "Son, why have you done this to us? Behold, your father and I were looking for you in sorrow." And He said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?" And they did not understand the saying which He spoke to them.
And He went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, and His mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
