according to all we have Jeshua followed the jewish laws of the time.

Following the conveluted legends in the bible He was of the royal house of David albiet probably a Cadet branch. Some time around the age of 12-14
he would have barMitzphahed and joined the adult community. Shortly there after again according to custom and law he would have married. the most likely candidates are Mary of Bethany and Mary Magdalene ( who according to another tradition was of the royal line of Benjamin and the Daughter of a Priest at the temple of Capernaum). Many believe these two figures to be the same person.

In the passage most quoted Luke 2: 41-49 , Modern translations are at odds
not only with each other( some say he sat with "the Doctors", others say
with the "teachers". other older versions say Rabbis and teachers.")

Again modern versions say "when he was 12 years old" . This would be
nothing wonderous but probably refer to the barMitzphah. However in versions from 40 - 45 years ago the passage read "he was in his 12th year."
Thus indicating he was in his 12th year in the adult community or between
24 and 28 years of age depending on when he barMitzphahed.

It was also the custom for a man to spend the years between marraige (14 -16) and age 30 - 33 attending family matters, raising his children etc. Then entering his "mission" ( you find this same tradition much later in the Cathars)

In this case there would not be much to record between say age 14 and 30.
He was doing what everybody was doing raising a family and providing for them. By the time his "ministry started at ca. 30 yrs his oldes son would/could have already barMitzphahed and joined the adult community.

They certainly wrote about Jesus's childhood. Just not a lot that was decided to be canon.

Read The Infancy Gospel of Thomas.

Oh dear. You really need to read Chapters 1 & 2 of Matthew. Jesus was born the King of Jews and of a Virgin and yes, word spread all over according to the Bible.

I did go and read the bible Matthew Chapter 2 seemed entirely important.
Sorry for the long quote Mods but I felt that it would be important to include the entire chapter.

Matthew 2
The Visit of the Magi

1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi[a] from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."

3When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ[c] was to be born. 5"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:
6" 'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.'[d]"

7Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

9After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east[e] went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. 12And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.

The Escape to Egypt

13When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up," he said, "take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him." 14So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: "Out of Egypt I called my son."[f]

16When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. 17Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled:
18"A voice is heard in Ramah,
weeping and great mourning,
Rachel weeping for her children
and refusing to be comforted,
because they are no more."[g]
The Return to Nazareth

19After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt 20and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child's life are dead."

21So he got up, took the child and his mother and went to the land of Israel. 22But when he heard that Archelaus was reigning in Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee, 23and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was said through the prophets: "He will be called a Nazarene."

New International Version (NIV)

So yes Herod found out about this, and wanted him. Word I do believe stayed rather tight but in any case. Jesus and his mother ran off, Mary was not stoned to death Just to clear up a few confusions

I never stated "Mary was stoned to death". Just so you know.

You all might be interested in checking out the "Lost Gospels". You can find them at Barnes and Noble. These are the books that never got put into the Bible. They were deemed to be "not divinely influenced by God". Weird stuff to read. Some of the stuff really shocked me. Then after awhile, I thought, "This stuff really shouldn't have made it in."

Anway, in one of these books it talks about Jesus being a little boy and some of his exploits, like the time another child came up and knocked him down and Jesus got him back (you gotta read it), or the time he turned the clay/mud birds into real birds and they flew away. Interesting stuff. Not sure if I believe it though.

Anne Rice (Interview With A Vampire) just released a book based on these Lost Gospels that basically tells the story of Jesus growing up as a boy. You might want to check out that book also.
