Luke’s gospel does not provide detailed information about Jesus’ childhood. As Alistair Begg explains, however, Scripture makes it clear that Jesus was fully human and fully God. As a child, He grew in wisdom as we do, learning from and observing the world around Him. Because He lived a fully human life, experiencing all we have, yet resisting temptation, we are able to place hope in his atonement for our sin.
39And when they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth.
