As I've said in the past, the Gospels do not provide us with a "biography" of our Lord's life. Were that the purpose of any of the Gospel writers, what we have in our Bibles would actually look quite different. And so, you will find large gaps in the narratives that are given, especially between our Lords younger years and the time that He had begun His earthly ministry, when He was around thirty years old.
What we can and ought to suspect is that throughout the majority of His teenage and young adult life, He just lived as an ordinary man, working as a carpenter (like his father, Joseph) and doing all that He could to support His parents in the care of their home in Nazareth.
Now certainly, He spent much time studying and learning the Scriptures, as we will see this morning, but beyond that, He wasn't out performing miracles or doing anything that grabbed the
attention of his neighbors or local towns people. In fact, he was so discreet in His earlier years, that during His later years of ministry, the people of Nazareth had a hard time embracing Him as
the Messiah, stating, "Is this not the carpenter's son?" He was just so ordinary to them, that they could not even register the possibility that He could have been the extraordinary Messiah.
