The Bible shows that Jesus lived in the home of his parents in Nazareth, in Israel when he was young. When Jesus was a man, however, the New Testament Bible teaches us that He had no fixed home since he traveled around preaching, teaching and healing.
"Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." (Luke 9:58 in the New Testament Bible, NKJV) .
But as a child, and probably as a young man, Jesus’s home was with his mother and adoptive father in Nazareth. This is seen in both the New Testament which historicizes and recounts Jesus’ life, but also in the Old Testament Bible which points to the coming Messiah and shows where He would live.
