Jesus at the age of twelve accompanies Mary and Joseph, and a large group of their relatives and friends to Jerusalem on pilgrimage, “according to the custom” – that is, Passover. On the day of their return, Jesus “lingered” in the Temple, but Mary and Joseph thought that he was among their group.
He was obedient to God to the point of death, even on a cross. Why did Jesus wait 30 years to start his ministry ? People had to consider Jesus as a fully mature adult to become a teacher. Although He was divine, Jesus ‘ physical body need to grow in maturity, as well as His mental [physical] capacity.
So we know from this that Jesus was 7 + 33 = 40 days old at the time of this ceremony.

According to this text, which Notovitch had translated into French, Jesus had spent his missing years – the years between his childhood and the beginning of his ministry – studying Buddhism in India. At the age of about 30 , he’ d returned to the Middle East and the life that is familiar to us from the New Testament.
Using these methods, most scholars assume a date of birth between 6 and 4 BC, and that Jesus ‘ preaching began around AD 27–29 and lasted one to three years. They calculate the death of Jesus as having taken place between AD 30 and 36.
