Introduction into the text:
Summarization
Jesus was led by the Spirit to be tempted.
Tempted:
Christ:
Why does the Bible say Jesus grew in wisdom if He is God in and ?
Is difficult for us to understanding that how can perfection grow in wisdom, grace and favor?
Also, in that Jesus grew in obedience.
Comes down to the nature of Jesus
Incarnation define
There is a blended of nature: Jesus never stop being God instead Jesus took on the nature of man in which is the Hypostatic Union which describes the union of Christ’s humanity and divinity in one individual existence.
Jesus never had to be obedient to God because he was God. Jesus never had to be grow in wisdom, grace, and favor because he was God.
Now, when it comes to trust. You got to learn to be obedient.
Jesus grew in wisdom and stature (physical growth). Jesus did this! By remaining/abiding in God’s truth and love. Jesus found favor in the sight of God. Jesus always yielded to the perfect will of the Father.
Jesus grew in wisdom all his life. Jesus did not grow in his divine nature but in his humanity. Jesus simply laid aside the right. Jesus yielded to the Father. Jesus did not operate outside of His divinity. Jesus operate His dependence of the Father. The world observed Jesus growing as a man.
