    The Baptist Affirmation of Faith 1966
    The Participants Those are the right persons to gather for the Lord’s Supper who are in fellowship with the local church, and are come together to participate fully in its fellowship. A true humility, sometimes being expressed as unworthy to come is not to be confused with a lack of discernment and unspirituality which make a person altogether unworthy. Persons should not come to the Lord’s Table who are under the excluding discipline of the church – heretics, those of unworthy motives holding anything unforgiven against another, or with known sin not repented of or other spiritual hindrances to a proper discernment of the essential oneness in Christ. Similarly, believers who deliberately refuse the instruction of the Word as given within the church by its elders, or who disobey the commandments of the Lord (such as baptism or to love one another) should not present themselves.
    Persons known to be unqualified, whose presence at the Lord’s Table would occasion a breach of fellowship, should be requested to withdraw by the elders. If a person, having shared in the Lord’s Supper is found subsequently to be an unworthy partaker to the hurt of the church, he should be dealt with as a disorderly person as Scripture directs. Humble repentance, followed by a gracious obedience, would make such a person acceptable again and in this, pastoral care is most desirable and fruitful. Failure to respond graciously and offer submission to the Word of God taught, would in itself require the church to take stern action and this, i­n the case of hardened persistence, would lead to exclusion from the church. An unbaptised person, though a believer, who has been properly instructed in the scriptural truth of the ordinance of believer’s baptism and who refuses to submit to the Word, would come within this discipline of the church.

    Reading

    Luke 2:41–52 ESV
    Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom. And when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, but supposing him to be in the group they went a day’s journey, but then they began to search for him among their relatives and acquaintances, and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching for him. After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.” And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” And they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them. And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.

    Sermon

    Luke 2:41 ESV
    Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover.
    The Law obligated all males Jews “of mature age” to got o Jerusalem 3 times a year
    Due to growth & dispersal - custom once a year
    Joseph & Mary - elected Passover
    Luke 2:42–45 ESV
    And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom. And when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, but supposing him to be in the group they went a day’s journey, but then they began to search for him among their relatives and acquaintances, and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching for him.
    Jesus was 12 on the occasion in question
    Feast lasted 7 Days
    Travelled with relatives and friends
    after 1 day they discover Jesus is not with them
    return to Jerusalem
    Luke 2:46–47 ESV
    After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.
    3 days searching (the 3rd day)
    day (morning & evening)
    famous jewish teachers likely to be found in the temple
    questions and answers was a key method of teaching
    They were amazed at the questions and answers Jesus gave
    Don’ exaggerate! Jesus is not yet a teacher
    Natural Development
    Luke 2:48 ESV
    And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.”
    Natural distress and reaction
    Joseph was Jesus’ legal “father”
    women were given their own area for prayer
    Mary spoke under his authority
    Why have you treated us so? ...
    Luke 2:49 ESV
    And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”
    Jesus is clearly aware of his unique relationship with his Father in heaven
    Why are you looking for me?
    Did you not know I must be in my Father’s house?
    Must
    Luke 2:50 ESV
    And they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them.
    Family & Desciples - took his sayings literally instead of figuratively
    So often failing to understand Him
    Luke 2:51 ESV
    And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart.
    Unquestioningly Jesus returned with them
    He was submissive to them
    Mary took note and held on to these occasions, later to share with others
    Luke 2:52 ESV
    And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.
    Grew in wisdom
    Grew in Stature
    Grew in favour with God & man
    Note difference between Jesus & John
    no more mention of Joseph

    Closing Prayer

    Doxology(read) –

    Give thanks to God, for he is good,
    the everlasting Giver:
    let all his people praise the Lord
    whose love endures for ever.
    For his right hand has made me strong;
    I am his new creation:
    he is my God, he is my song,
    my strength and my salvation.
