Yes, that's the question. Does it apply to the state
of humiliation as well as to the state of exaltation? & a good deal
depends on how one understands "hidden."
I have already said that I don't think that there is
any drop-dead argument one way or another on this question. Citation
of individual verses will not settle the matter. I have given
reasons why I think the view that Jesus' human knowledge during his
life on earth was limited, but recognize
that other Christians will see the matter differently. It would be
wise for all of us to reflect on why we consider one or the other
