Luke 2:44

_ _ sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintances — On these sacred journeys, whole villages and districts traveled in groups together, partly for protection, partly for company; and as the well-disposed would beguile the tediousness of the way by good discourse, to which the child Jesus would be no silent listener, they expect to find Him in such a group.

See commentary on Luke 2:41-52.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
