The Three Days in the Temple
The gospel only mentions this episode briefly and there rather from the perspective of Jesus‘ parents who miss the twelve year old boy after their stay in Jerusalem.
In 32 chapters the work gives many details and discussions about what happened when Jesus faced the top brass of the temple.
As was the custom in the land of the Jews, every 12 year old boy had to have a test of his knowledge the teachings of God and the prophets (girls were exempt but were accepted in case they insisted).
We learn that this ‘examination‘ usually lasted only a few minutes as the questions normally were basic. Sometimes, however, the student would ask back and according to the student‘s IQ his examiners were at loss with the answers. Pharisees and scribes would then have to come to rescue.
It goes without saying that young Jesus, given what kind of spirit resided in Him, gave his examiners a hard time right from the beginning despite obviously the simplest of questions. Over this three day period the reader witnesses that not even the most learned specialists of the scriptures were able to interpret correctly the many passages pointing to the coming of the Messiah.
We see as well how the attitude of the examiners turned discussion partners evolves from disdain to amazement to finally disbelief or embarrassment. Few were those who took Jesus interpretations of the prophets to heart and started researching in earnest. Practically the only ones to presage that this boy was everything but an ordinary human being were Nicodemus, who loved Jesus with all his heart. He practically became one of his first disciples. The Roman judge, protector of Jesus and witness of every word He said during these three days became a believer as well.
