18. Tuesday, April 9, 9 A.D.: The Finding.


18. Tuesday, April 9, 9 A.D.: The Finding.


Because the Feast of the Passover has been ended, the people of Nazareth were returning their home.

On the other hand, Jesus stayed at Jerusalem yet, but His parents were unaware of that thing. As they were thinking that He was in their company, they traveled for a day.

They began looking for Him among their relatives and friends, but they could not find Him, and they went back to Jerusalem.

The Finding is the fifth Mystery of the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.

Tuesday, April 9, 9 A.D. of the Julian calendar: Holy Mother Mary was twenty-nine years seven months and one day old.

Jesus was twelve years three months and fifteen days old.

After three days, they found Jesus in the temple courts, sitting among the doctors, listening to them and asking them some questions. All men who heard Him were very amazed at His understanding and His answers. When His parents saw Him, they were astonished, and Holy Mother Mary said. (Luke 2:43-52).

“Son, why have You treated us like this? Your father and I have been looking for You anxiously.”

Jesus said to them.

“Why were you searching for Me? Didn’t you know that I had to be in My Father’s house?”

They didn’t understand the saying which He spoke to them. He went back to Nazareth with them and obeyed to them. Holy Mother Mary treasured all those things in her heart. Jesus grew up in wisdom and height and in favor with the God and the inhabitants.

When I was meditating on this Chapter, I noticed that it was not the third day, but after three days.

Monday, April 8, 9 A.D. of the Julian calendar, Joseph and Holy Mother Mary looked for Jesus, but they could not seek Him.

Tuesday, April 9, 9 A.D. of the Julian calendar, they were looking for Jesus from down but they could not search Him.

When they went up to the Temple of Jerusalem they found Him in the temple courts.
