    In My Opinion:

    Luke 2:52

    New American Standard Bible

    And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and people.


    So, according to this Jesus Christ increased in wisdom

    According to this, throughout his life he got progressively wiser, as he grew and matured

    At one point he was wise to one extent, and then at a later point he was wise to an even greater extent

    Which is what happens to humans, not to God

    God is omniscient and is infinitely wise, hence he cannot increase in wisdom

    So this shows that in his incarnation, Jesus Christ had the mental limitations of a human

    An outstanding human, yes. But a human nonetheless

    This scripture gives us an insight into the nature of the hypostatic union

    And what about "and in favour with God"???

    Perhaps this means that God (The Father) felt increasingly proud of him and his works and ministry?
