He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands?Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. - Mark 6:1-3 ESV
''The citizens of Nazareth didn’t know him as someone who was just returning after leaving at the age of 12.
Their remarks show he had grown up in their town, learned carpentry from Joseph, and worked as a carpenter."

I just read what it said. If he had been gone since the age of ten they wouldn't have wondered how he knew what he did. They would have assumed he had spent time studying somewhere. It was only because they had seen his life that they know he hadn't had the opportunity for this.
