Luke 2:44-45

2:44 but (because they assumed that he was in their group of travelers) 1  they went a day’s journey. Then 2  they began to look for him among their relatives and acquaintances. 3  2:45 When 4  they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem 5  to look for him.

1 sn An ancient journey like this would have involved a caravan of people who traveled together as a group for protection and fellowship.

2 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

3 tn Or “and friends.” See L&N 28.30 and 34.17.

4 tn Grk “And when.” Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

5 sn The return to Jerusalem would have taken a second day, since they were already one day’s journey away.
