In the dust of the Rabbi- Day 17


Title: The boyhood of Jesus part 3


Scriptures to Read: Luke 2:51-52


Commentary:


Subjection is not a question of superiority or inferiority.

In verse 51 the superior sinless God-Man Subjects Himself to two sinful human beings because subjection is a matter of divine order. Likewise, in the husband-wife relationship, it is one co-equal subjecting himself to another co-equal because it is a matter of divine order.


Mary treasured all these things in her heart.

Mary pondered what all these things meant, and ultimately she concluded that her son was the messianic God-man.


Jesus develops in the same four areas that all of us have to develop in.

• He develops mentally – he increased in wisdom.
• He develops physically – he increased in stature.
• He develops spiritually – he increased in favour with God.
• He develops socially – He increased in favour with men.

That summarises His human development from the age of twelve to about the age of 30 or so.
