2:40 And the child grew - In bodily strength and stature; and waxed strong in spirit - The powers of his human mind daily improved; filled with wisdom - By the light of the indwelling Spirit, which gradually opened itself in his soul; and the grace of God was upon him - That is, the peculiar favour of God rested upon him, even as man.
Lu 2:40 The child grew. He was a child, and a child that grew in heart, in intellect, in size, in grace, in favor with God. Not a man in child's years. Filled with wisdom. The body advances in stature and the soul in wisdom. The divine nature revealed its own wisdom in proportion to the measure of the bodily growth (Cyril). In "the mystery of godliness: God manifest in the flesh" (1Ti 3:16), one of the inscrutable things that was that the Divine man should become a babe, not only in body, but in mind and wisdom.
Kunle's comment on 2013-10-15 01:32:51:
Not a comment on Luke, but a correction on the verse Luke 2:40 King James Version (1611). "Upon" was written with a "V" it was written as vpon. Is this correct with the translation or just an error?
