New Defender's Study Bible Notes
2:46 in the midst. Even as a child, Jesus was “in the midst” of things. Note Luke 4:30; John 8:59; 19:18. After His resurrection He suddenly appeared “in the midst” of His disciples (John 20:19,26). Even today, He is “in the midst” wherever “two or three are gathered together in my name” (Matthew 18:20). In the eternal ages to come, He will again stand “in the midst” of the elders representing all the redeemed (Revelation 5:6).
