The apocryphal writers were fond of treating the human nature of Jesus like the divine nature of Jesus. They attributed omniscience and mighty powers to the human nature of Jesus. But Luke tells us what the author of Hebrews confirm: Jesus was like us being tempted like us (Heb. 5:8). When Luke says that the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom (Luke 2:40), he is implying that Jesus’ human nature continued to learn throughout his life. Hendriksen observes:
He had to grow up, and this is not only physically but also mentally…(NTC, 179).
If we begin to divinize the humanity of Christ, we lose His incarnation.
