In Luke we see Jesus in the synagogue, and he at twelve years of age is well versed in the Old Testament. How did He come by this knowledge at such an early age?
Luke2.51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart.
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.
When and how was Jesus taught? In the famous verse in Isaiah that describes Jesus on the cross, there is a mention of how He was taught and when He was taught: He was awakened by God early in the morning.
Isaiah50.4 The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught. 5The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward.
