Luke 2

  48 His parents didn't know what to think. "Son," his mother said to him, "why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been frantic, searching for you everywhere."
  49 "But why did you need to search?" he asked. "Didn't you know that I must be in my Father's house?"*50 But they didn't understand what he meant.
  51 Then he returned to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. And his mother stored all these things in her heart.
  52 Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.

I would say without question, that the accuracy of the New Living Translation and the scholarship that has gone into it has been impressive, and I can trust it.
