It is easy to forget that part of Jesus’ early childhood was spent outside of Bethlehem and the Holy Land. Jehovah’s angel has just appeared to him in a dream, telling him: “Get up, take the young child and his mother and flee to Egypt, and stay there until I give you word, for Herod is about to search for the young child to kill him.” — Matthew 2:13.

Jesus likely took his first steps not in Bethlehem or Nazareth, but in Egypt. The Christian faith, brought to Alexandria by Mark the Evangelist in 41 AD, spread quickly throughout Egypt, the earliest churches being founded on sites where it was believed the Holy Family had visited.

The unknown years of Jesus (also called his silent years, lost years, or missing years) generally refers to the period of Jesus's life between his childhood and the beginning of his ministry, a period not described in the New Testament.
