After 3 days of desperate searching Mary and Joseph found the young Jesus in the temple.

In this setting the first recorded words of Jesus’ earthly life are found, and those words were a question:

“How is it that ye sought me?” Luke 2:49a

Strange, isn’t it? The all knowing Creator asks questions. He did so with Adam, Job, Elijah, and Jonah; He would soon also ask Peter and Paul questions.

How are we seeking Him? Are we seeking Him in truth? Knowing His character, we know we will find Him where His Word is spoken. We will find Him in the words of the Word. (John 5:39) -PB
