    This is the time when Jesus stayed behind at the synagogue for a few days after Passover, and was not noticed he was missing by his parents.

    When his parents went back to Jerusalem to get him, he was found teaching the teachers on the synagogue steps.

    I heard it described as they had a long camel caravan to go home, and a huge extended family. Everybody thought that Jesus was with somebody else in the group.

    Upon finding his son, Joseph was heard to have muttered between clenched teeth, "Jesus k-RIST, when we get home you are going STRAIGHT to your room.....!"

    Please proceed, governor

      This line:

      "Jesus k-RIST, when we get home you are going STRAIGHT to your room.....!"
      was left out of the Gospels.

      Please proceed, governor

        BITTER WITHY
        (traditional ballad)

        As it fell out on a high holiday
         Small rain from the sky did fall
         Sweet Jesus asked of his own mother dear
         Whether he might play at ball

        To play, to play, dear child she did say
         It's time that you have been gone
         And don't let me hear complaints about you
         At night when you do come home

        Now our Savior walked down into yonder town
         As far as the holy, holy well
         And there he met three of the finest children
         That ever any tongue could tell

        Good morn, good morn, good morn, said they
         Good morning, then said he, said he
         Now which of you three fine children
         Will play at ball with me

        Oh we are lords and ladies sons
         Born in a bowery hall
         And you are but a maiden's child
         Born in an oxen stall

        Now our savior built a bridge with the beams of the sun
         and over the water ran he, ran he
         And the three jolly children followed after him
         And drowned they were all three

        The upward ball and the downward ball
         Their mothers they did wail and squall
         Saying, Mary mild, fetch home your child
         For ours are drownded all

        Then Mary mild picked a handful of withies
         And laid our dear savior across her knee
         And with that handful of withy twigs
         She gave him slashes three

        Oh cursed be to the bitter withy
         That has caused me to smart, to smart
         And that shall be the very first tree
         That shall perish right at the heart
