The incident of Jesus remaining in the temple gives us a unique look into his life as a young boy. Not only do we observe Jesus fully dedicated to the will of his heavenly Father, that he “must” be in his house (Luke 2:49), but we also see him in submission to his earthly parents: “And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them” (2:51). While we often read of Jesus’ submission to the will of his Father in the gospels, and how that obedience led him to the cross, this particular episode is just as pivotal to our salvation. In this sermon, Pastor Dave explains how Jesus’ submission to his parents was necessary for him to be the sinless Savior, the perfect sacrifice for sins, who is able to clothe those who trust in him with his perfect righteousness.
