Subject/Title of Window: Boy Jesus in the Temple

Brief Description of Subject: The "Boy Jesus in the Temple" is also known as the "Finding in the Temple". The story as well as the inscription is found in Luke 2:42-59(RV). (Synopsis): The Holy family had gone to Jerusalem for the Passover but on the return trip his parents discovered Jesus was not with them. After three days of searching they found him in the Temple with the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Every one that heard him were astonished with his knowledge. His mother asked him: "Why didn't you tell us were you were going? Your father and I were anxiously looking for you." Jesus answered them (v.49) "WIST YE NOT THAT I MUST BE IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE."

Inscriptions: Wist ye not that I must be in my Father's House

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
