How did Jesus Learn?

How did Jesus learn? We are learning how he taught with the Sunday School class, “Teaching the Savior’s Way.” While attending that class I had the thought, “How did Jesus learn?” The first thing that came to mind was that he “continued from grace to grace until he received a fullness.” (D&C 93:13) What does “grace to grace” mean? Are there other ways Jesus learns?

Here are a few ways:

  • He “continued from grace to grace, until he received a fullness.” (D&C 93:13)

  • Jesus Christ learned “obedience by the things which he suffered” (Hebrews 5:8)

  • Jesus learned a little at a time: “It is not wisdom that we should have all knowledge at once presented before us; but that we should have a little at a time; then we can comprehend it” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph Smith[2007], 268). And I, John, saw that [Jesus] received not of the fullness at the first, but received grace for grace (D&C 93:12)

  • He sought “learning even by study and also by faith” (D&C 109:7)

  • Jesus learned and grew in grace and in the knowledge of God (2 Peter 3:18)

  • He was proven to see if he would all everything commanded him (Abraham 3:25)

  • He experienced and worked through the struggle, sorrow, and joys which improved his learning ability. (Moses 4:22-23)

  • Jesus was taught by both his earthly and heavenly father! (he was homeschooled and learned several languages)

  • He endured through hardships: He “endure it well” (D&C 121:8) and “all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good.” (D&C 122:7)

  • He was motivated to learn because of his love for Father

How do you learn? Is it the same way Jesus learned? Are you helping your children learn in this manner?
