Though Jesus was the literal Son of God, as a young child he needed to be taught and cared for much like other children. This would be necessary because "over his mind had fallen the veil of forgetfulness common to all who are born to earth, by which the remembrance of primeval

existence is shut off" (James E. Talmage, Jesus the Christ, p. 111). Jesus Development was Accelerated (Matthew 3:24-26JST) for His development was unretarded by the dragging weight of sin; He loved and obeyed the truth and therefore

was free. (James E. Talmage, Jesus the Christ [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1983], 106.) Jesus as a boy When still a boy, He had all the intelligence necessary to enable Him to rule and govern the kingdom of the Jews, and could reason with the wisest and most profound doctors of law

and divinity, and make their theories and practice to appear like folly compared with the wisdom he possessed; but He was a boy only, and lacked physical strength even to defend His own person; and was subject to cold, to hunger and to death (TPJS, p. 392). Grace to Grace (D&C 93:12-14) The Child grew, and with growth there came to Him expansion

of mind, development of faculties, and progression in power and understanding. His advancement was from one grace to another, not from gracelessness to grace; from good to greater good, not from evil to good, from favor with God to greater favor, not from estrangement because of sin to reconciliation through repentance and propitiation. (James E. Talmage, Jesus the Christ: A Study of the Messiah and His Mission According to Holy Scriptures Both Ancient and Modern [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1983], 105.)

Pre-Mortal Foundations He was so highly endowed with talents and abilities, so spiritually sensitive, so in tune with the Infinite, that his learning and wisdom soon excelled that of all his fellows. His knowledge came to him quickly and easily because he was buildingas is the case with all menupon the foundations laid in preexistence. He brought with him from that eternal world the talents and capacities, the inclinations

to conform and obey, and the ability to recognize truth that he had there acquired. Jesus, when yet a child had spiritual talents that no other man in a hundred lifetimes could obtain (Bruce R. McConkie, The Mortal Messiah, p. 369). Neither could he be taught(Matthew 3:24-26JST; Luke 2:46-7JST)

He was subject to his Mother and Father (Luke 2:51) Christs Baptism Tell the story Christs Baptism Matthew 3:13-16 contains three lessons regarding baptism

By authority (3:13; Article of Faith 5, Hebrews 5:4) Due Processby immersion (3:16; Romans 6:3-6) Nobody is above the law (3:15; 2 Nephi 31:512)
