Bible Commentary for Luke 2:45

Wesley's Notes for Luke 2:45


2:43 The child Jesus - St. Luke describes in order Jesus the fruit of the womb, #Lu 1:42|; an infant, #Lu 2:12|; a little child, #Lu 2:40|; a child here, and afterward a man. So our Lord passed through and sanctified every stage of human life. Old age only did not become him.

2:44 Supposing him to have been in the company - As the men and women usually travelled in distinct companies.

2:46 After three days - The first day was spent in their journey, the second, in their return to Jerusalem: and the third, in searching for him there: they found him in the temple - In an apartment of it: sitting in the midst of the doctors - Not one word is said of his disputing with them, but only of his asking and answering questions, which was a very usual thing in these assemblies, and indeed the very end of them. And if he was, with others, at the feet of these teachers (where learners generally sat) he might be said to be in the midst of them, as they sat on benches of a semicircular form, raised above their hearers and disciples.
