The Reign of Christ. Book One. Chapter Six: The Dispensation of the Doctrine of Christ

Both the synagogue and the early Church exhibited a singular concern for this kind of catechizing. Also, our Lord Jesus Christ took part in something of this sort when at twelve years of age he remained in Jerusalem without the knowledge of his parents. For so Luke writes of him: “They found him sitting in the Temple in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were astonished at his understanding and his responses” (Luke 2:46-47). Jesus, therefore, then listened. To whom? Undoubtedly to the teachers, who were catechizing him and the other boys.
