Mary. Part-Four.


In Luke 2:48-51 we learn of Jesus being left behind in Jerusalem and his parents returning to seek him. Today when a child goes missing is causes great distress and worry to the parents. They went up to Jerusalem so that Jesus could have his Bar-mitzvah, his time to enter adulthood had come. He was found in the Temple courts talking and discussing the scriptures with the teachers of the law (Torah). These are perhaps the latter secret followers, like Nicodemus (John 3:1-16), Joseph of Arimathea (Matthew 27:57-60) and Gamaliel (Acts 5:33-41) who were present that day.

But Mary had to go through a series of worries before the events of the cross.
