Was Jesus Omniscient Before the Resurrection?

Episode 588 Show Notes 

From the Show

In the plan of salvation, as God the Son, equal with the Father in power and glory, the Son came to earth and he clothed himself in humanity. He embraced the limitations and weakness of humanity. That is why Jesus can make the statements in the New Testament that depict him not knowing what the Father knows.

–Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. If Jesus had limited knowledge due to his human nature, does he now have full omniscience being seated at the right hand of the Father?

2. Why is David allowed to eat the Bread of Presence in 1 Samuel 21? Leviticus 24 sounds pretty straight forward that only the priests and their family could eat the bread. I understand that Jesus makes reference to this event in Luke 6 in order to show the Pharisees that they were incorrect about how to interpret the Law, and that he, being God, knew and applied the proper interpretation of the Law. Still, I don’t understand why David was allowed to eat the bread in the first place.

3. Can you follow a false prophet into the kingdom of God?

4. If we are born in sin, how could Jesus not be a sinner in that he was born to a sinner?

5. I hear the word love used so many different times, and it seems like everyone has a different interpretation. How can it be interpreted so many different ways?
