  • I think he taught in the temple like he did when he was 12, did carpentry work with Joseph and prepared for his work here on earth.

  • he was a teenager, going through what we all go through so he could better understand our turmoil so he could use that to reach out to us more effectively. that's what i think.

  • But, he also went through his 20’s, he didn’t start his ministry until he was 30, right?

    I think he probably taught and studied and maybe traveled.

  • As you said, he learned, he studied, he waited for the time to come that would be the begining of the end of his life.

  • Studied, lived life as a Jew, the typical things that we would expect a Jew in that time and place to do....

  • learned the carpentry trade, studied the Jewish faith, and if he knew about his future role he probably was questioning it as most ppl in the Bible did.
