I have often thought about the exchange that passed between Jesus and the doctors at the temple in Jerusalem. It looks like Jesus was asking questions that were so perspicacious as to astonish the Jewish teachers in the temple that they confirmed his brilliance while leading the teachers themselves into deeper truths.
46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. (Luke 2:46-47 ESV)
What was Jesus really asking and answering the doctors at the temple?
