Christmas Countdown Book Day 11: Young Jesus Teaches in the Temple
Jesus Teaching the Elders in the Temple
41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover.
42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
44 But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

This ornament is similar to the one for Jesus Christ on Day 1. I filled clear plastic ornaments with tinsel and printed a small picture of the temple to fit inside.
