[quote=Tantum ergo]Paul referenced Jesus’s celibacy.
I did not know that. Where can I find that?
[quote=Tantum ergo]And, Angainor, Jesus KNEW who He was, and He KNEW what was going to happen (He IS the Second Person of the Trinity).
I have no doubt that from Jesus’ first breath to his last he was always looking to follow the Father’s will. I don’t know what it felt like to have Jesus’ divine nature, but I do know what it feels like to be human, and I believe Jesus was perfect man. Humans do not always possess certain knowledge of the Father’s will. Humans certainly cannot see into the future. Lacking those qualities are part of what makes humans human. If Jesus could see into the future, I don’t think I could call him perfectly human. He would be something else. No, I don’t think Jesus at 20 years old had a clear vision of his final fate.
[quote=Tantum ergo]His human nature wasn’t “unsure” at the time of the Agony in the Garden, His human nature required Him to pray perfectly to the Father, telling the Father what He wanted in His humanity
No, I think Jesus’ words were sincere. I don’t think he was play-acting being human. “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but your will be done”.
If you are willing? Jesus doesn’t know if the Father is willing, he has to ask in prayer. Yet not my will, but your will be done. Jesus’ will and the Father’s will are separate things.
