Monday's Musings

So, I was reading Beth Moore- you have got to love that woman- and in her Jesus book she makes an observation. Talking about the time Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem at the age of 12, she says that the Greek (the original language of the New Testament) doesn't have the word 'house' in it. When Mary asks Jesus where He'd been, Jesus didn't nessesarily say I needed to be about my Father's House- but might have simply been saying- I needed to be about my Father. My question? Is it possible that He was just so freaking homesick that He needed to spend some time about the one place on the planet- at the time- that God dwelled bodily?

A random thought- and hardly of eternal significance, but something to make you go 'hmmmmmm'.
