Since Jesus was God, He could have seen everything in the world all at once, all the time, just like His Father did. Instead He used His eyes to see, just like we do. Even though He didn’t have to, He used His tongue to taste and His ears to hear.
And instead of knowing everything all at once, all the time, He used His mind to learn. He didn’t just pretend to learn what He already knew. He acquired His knowledge the same way we all do. For example, He wasn’t born knowing how to talk, read, and write. He learned like the rest of us.
And, like us, He also learned the lessons that can’t be learned from books. We are told in Hebrews 5:7-8 that, “in the days of His flesh…though he was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.”
