Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:45-46

_ _ After three sorrowing days, they find Him still in Jerusalem, not gazing on its architecture, or surveying its forms of busy life, but in the temple — not the “sanctuary” (as in Luke 1:9), to which only the priests had access, but in some one of the enclosures around it, where the rabbins, or “doctors,” taught their scholars.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:41-52.
