Everyone that heard him speak that day was amazed at his knowledge of Jewish traditions along with his close connection between Jesus and God. After this piece of scripture written by gospel of Luke nothing else is recorded or noted in regards to Jesus youth. At age thirty Jesus heard the preaching’s of John the Baptist along the River Jordan. John the Baptist is described as a prophet preacher who was later put in jail and killed under the ruler of Galilee which at the time was under Roman Empire.
