Session 4.01 January 1, 2012
In our text today, Joseph and Mary seem to be stopping off in Jerusalem on their way to Nazareth from Bethlehem shortly after Jesus has been born. Luke either does not know about the Holy Family’s trip to Egypt, or he simply chooses to leave it out of his telling of the story. Mary and Joseph stop in Jerusalem to participate in the rituals following the birth of a child as all good Jewish families would do.
