“True God and True Man”
Q. When did Jesus know that he was God as well as man? What is a good argument against the belief of some who say, “not until his resurrection”?
— Richard Balogh
A. Here’s a reply from Father Reginald Martin:
Jesus embraced our human nature, body and soul, at the Incarnation. Thus he had a human soul (with an intellect and will) united to his divine nature. In the Creed we acknowledge Jesus, “true God and true man.” At no time was the Divine Word unaware of his divine nature, nor was the human Jesus ignorant of his divine counterpart. Scripture shows the human Jesus frightened or lonely, but St. Thomas Aquinas points out in his Summa Theologiae, “There was no contrariety of wills in him.”
