2.6 After Herods death, an angel instructed Joseph in a dream, “Rise and return to Israel with mother and child, for they who wanted to kill the child are dead. On rising, he obeyed. On hearing that Herods son, Archelaus, was reigning in Judea, and having been warned in another dream, he went to Nazareth in Galilee, fulfilling the prophecy that Jesus would be called a Nazarene.

There the child grew and became strong, being filled to the full with wisdom, and Gods grace was upon him.
