Boy Jesus in the Temple

Jesus showed at an early age that He was becoming aware of His identity as the Messiah. Even at the age of 12 He was able to talk with the teachers in the temple. This event shows His early familiarity with the Scriptures and that He understood the temple to be His "father's house." These Boy Jesus in the Temple Bible activities are about this event and can help kids understand that Jesus also had to grow in His own understanding of who God is and who He (Jesus) was, just like children and adults do today.
