If I may humbly add my take on the matter:
In may instances (and I am NOT suggesting anyone on this thread has done or is attempting to do this), particularly atheists, Jesus is “attacked” for supposedly showing “too many” human attributes - one of which is supposedly “not knowing”. Christ demonstrates this on a number of occasions.
Remember: Christ and God and the Holy Spirit are One. The persons in one God-head.
One must take into account that Christ had an appointed mission, and like all missions, thinks need to happen IN AN ORDERLY FASHION so that the mission “succeeds” and is not “compromised” ahead of time.
- Christ is walking and his robe is touched by a woman with a bleeding disorder and she is immediately healed.
Christ responds by asking (I am paraphrasing): Who touched me? Of course, Christ, as also one person in the Trinity, KNEW who touched him - he didn’t have to ask that question. But his question served a point of educating not only the reader of that verse but also those who witnessed the woman’s healing. Keep in mind, by simply asking does not mean he did not already know.
- Christ raises Lazarus simply by walking to Lazarus’s tomb, prays, and Lazarus appears. Yet, a blind man begs for sight, and Jesus then spits into a bit of dirt in his hands, forms a paste, puts it over the man’s eyes, and then the man’s sight is returned.
Now, why, you might ask, would prayer raise the dead but it takes spit and mud to make a man see? Quite simply, it doesn’t REQUIRE anything other than God’s intervention. Again, the manner in which Christ chose to exercise his power was of his own choosing and timing.
- “Only the Father knows”, Christ responded when pressed for the end of the world. Does that mean that CHRIST DID NOT KNOW?
Of course not. But by saying only the Father knows, Christ is also saying that HE knows as well, as he is part of the Holy Trinity along with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He simply did not allow THEM to know he knew as well by virtue of him being part of the Trinity.
So please don’t read too much into situations where Jesus leads those around to conclude he may not know something at a particular time.
