Read Luke 2:47 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: How comfortable would you be if you were asked to teach a college math class?
Parent Note: This question is meant to show how strange it was to see a child of 12 have the level of knowledge of the Scriptures that Jesus had. Presumably, Jesus was in the temple talking with religious leaders about Scriptures for the two days that Joseph and Mary were searching for Him. Being able to talk to people with deep understanding of Scripture for that long is remarkable!
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for the bible.
I know that Your Word has everything I need.
Please help me to know You better through Scripture.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
