Where Did Jesus Live Between the Age of 12 -30 Years of His Life?

The Bible does not comment on the life of Jesus between the ages of 12 and about 30. We know he most likely continued to live in Nazareth since the New Testament mentions him returning to his “hometown” to speak at the synagogue. He may have simply continued to work alongside Joseph as a carpenter and focused on prayer and studying God’s Word until his appointed time to serve in ministry.
