    (The Rev.) J. Jeffrey Zetto, Th.D.

    This story is strikingly similar to Luke’s story of 12-year-old Jesus going on the annual pilgrimage from Nazareth to Jerusalem for the Passover (Luke 2:41 ff). I suspect that most scholars would detect sufficient literary parallels to rise questions of “dependency.” The first question is, of course, whether the “lost child motif” original with Karmala or part of the editorial tweaking by Elle. The standard was set by Leopold von Ranke, history “wie es eigentlich gewesen,” history “as it actually happened,” emphasizing the importance of first sources with editorial explanations and interpretations clearly and separately indicated.
