At the age of twelve, Christ debated in the Temple of Jerusalem with senior scholars and priests and 'all that heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers' (New Testament, Luke 2: 41-8).

Mazzolino signifies that the building represents the Temple by including the relief of Moses above Christ's head and the Hebrew inscription. Much shell-gold is used in the painting of Christ.
