QTVOTD: The wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of Jesus…

“If then David thus calls Him Lord, how is He his Son?  And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor from that day did anyone venture or dare to question Him.” Matthew 22:45-46 ->me: To save room here in my text I am only going to include the last 2 verses of this passage of Jesus asking the Pharisee’s “That do you think of the Christ? Whose Son is He?”.  The Pharisees respond with “The Son of David”, to which Jesus recounts Psalms 110:1 -> “The Lord said to my Lord….”.  I read the accounts of Mark and Luke on this situation.  Jesus always poses these ‘unanswerable’ questions.  If they agree with Jesus then they must admit that Jesus is of higher authority than David.  They feared further debate and stopped asking questions.  What’s crazy is that this started when Jesus was 12 years old.  In Luke 2:46&47, after three days of Mary and Joseph missing him, they went looking for Him in the temple where it says -> “They found Him sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard Him were astonished and overwhelmed with bewildered wonder at His intelligence and understanding and His replies.”  I love how God in His word has given us these views into Jesus’ life that help us see the amazing humanness as well as His obvious divinity in knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.  Thank you God for the gift of your Word!
