Jesus is God....but set aside His powers....some say poured Himself out to the Father. There is a whole theory of "kenosis". Does anyone here know anything about it?
My view is that....Jesus is God....God is Perfect Justice and Mercy.....as God "plays out" His perfect mercy Jesus restrains His great powers and humbles Himself.........it is not such a stretch of the imagination to see that Jesus "set aside" His powers in such a way that He had to exercise Faith, Hope and Charity before the Father.
Now, if Jesus is exercising Faith and Trust in the Father.....then perhaps He healed people who weren't IMMEDIATELY healed.....and He cursed a fig tree that didn't show signs of withering RIGHT AWAY.....and He went into the desert and was at the point of starvation when the Father sent angels to care for Him.....and Jesus had great secrets of the endtimes withheld and other consolations too.
Jesus exercised Perfect Mercy and Courage....but let's never forget that He exercised TRUST in the Father at all times
