left behind

"After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem.  Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day.  Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends.  When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him.  After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.  Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.  When his parents saw him, they were astonished.  His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this?  Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

Why were you searching for me?” he asked.  “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” (Luke 2:43-49)

so they were the ones 
who left him behind 
and then they complained, 
“why have you 
treated us like this?”  

shouldn’t he have 
been the one 
asking that question?  

i guess not much has changed 
in the last two thousand years.
