Edifier du Jour Luke 2:39-40(NASB)
39 When they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own city of Nazareth. 40 The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.
I’m not sure what that young Jesus was like. If you accept that he was fully God and fully human, what would that fully God part look like as a 2-year-old? Would he have been uncommonly selfless, never hollering the Aramaic for “Mine! Mine!” or a petulant “No!”? What part of his divinity did he put in a blind trust until that day with John the Baptist? The verse here says that he increased in wisdom, which would mean that his God part was not totally there, for the God most of us worship can’t increase in wisdom. I’ve never heard a good explanation of how much of his omniscience and omnipotence he had as a kid. Could He have merely been a perfect kid, infused with a perfect conscience, a direct heart-to-heart line with God, until that release of the Holy Spirit after the baptism? For if he was able to know everything as a kid, he wouldn’t have surprised the locals with his messiahship; he would have already had the reputation as the child rabbi. Any comments on how the divinity of Jesus would have manifested itself?
