“JESUS PRESENTED IN THE TEMPLE,” IV,  Luke 2:39) And when they had Performed All Things According To The Law Of The Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.  40) And The Child Grew, And Waxed Strong In Spirit, Filled With Wisdom:  And The Grace Of God Was Upon Him.  

Nelson’s Concise Bible Commentary – v40, The Child Grew:  With this note, The Story Of Jesus’ Infancy Ends.  The Narrative picks up in v. 41 some Twelve Years Later. 

Matthew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary – v40,  In All Things It Became Christ To Be Made Like Unto His Brethren, Therefore He Passed Through Infancy And Childhood As Other Children, YET WITHOUT SIN, And With Manifest Proofs Of THE DIVINE NATURE IN HIM.  By The Spirit Of God All His Faculties Performed Their Offices In A Manner Not Seen In Any One Else.  Other Children Have Foolishness Bound In Their Hearts, Which Appears In What They Say Or Do, BUT HE WAS FILLED WITH SALVATION, BY THE INFLUENCE OF THE HOLY GHOST; Everything He Said And Did, Was Wisely Said And Wisely Done, Above His years.  Other Children Show The Corruption Of Their Nature:  NOTHING BUT THE GRACE OF GOD WAS UPON HIM.  Amen.
