Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 110

110. How did this man get such learning without having studied (John 7:15)?

Some have speculated that the carpenter Joseph was the source of Jesus amazing insights. Others want to tie His deity into the equation–that Jesus came to earth loaded with eternal knowledge. While the former may be more likely, the statements of the religious leaders may say more about them than Him. Yes, His insights exceeded all expectations, but their attitude seems to be how does He know this when He didn’t learn it from us? The attitude that says, “You must do things our way,” is ultimately an expression of ego and fear. Those who think such thoughts often have not kept learning themselves, but seek to control knowledge. That Jesus teaches differently exposes their inadequacies all the more.
