Jesus lived in Nazareth

This photo of two children was made at the Nazareth Village (a nice place to visit).

All four Gospels and the book of Acts make a reference to Nazareth as the place where Jesus lived in his early years. This one from the Gospel of Luke is set at a time when Jesus was about 12 years of age (Luke 2:42), and before He was 30 (Luke 3:23).

And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man. (Luke 2:51-52 ESV)
