The New Testament - A Brief Overview
Map of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus in Egypt
Joseph and Mary Flee to Egypt
Once Herod realized that he was deceived by the wise men he went on a rampage. He ordered the death of newborn babies in Bethlehem, and Joseph and Mary were warned in a dream to get out and go to Egypt with the child until those seeking his life were dead. They came out after a few months and arrived in the city of Nazareth in the region of Galilee.
"Jesus, having a manger at Bethlehem for his cradle, received a visit of adoration from the three wise men of the East. At forty days old he was taken to the temple at Jerusalem; and returning to Bethlehem, was soon taken to Egypt to escape Herod's massacre of the infants there. After a few months stay there, Herod having died in April, B.C. 4, the family returned to their Nazareth home, where Jesus lived till he was about thirty years old, subject to his parent, and increasing "in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." The only incident recorded of his early life is his going up to Jerusalem to attend the passover when he was twelve years old, and his conversation with the learned men in the temple. But we can understand the childhood and youth of Jesus better when we remember the surrounding influences amid which he grew." - Smith

22 - But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judaea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:
