may seem strange that the Son of God, who is said to know all Things, who is ordained to be Judge of the World, and in whom are all the Treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge, should not know the Time of the future Judgment. To account for this Difficulty, Expositors have gone feveral Ways; but that which appears to me molt reasonable, is Arch-Bishop Tilerson's
, in his Sermon on this Text, Vol 9. p. 273. namely, by diftinguishing between our Lord's Humane Nature and Divine; after which he fays: And though as God he could not be ignorant of any thing, yet his Humane Understanding did not know it, And it is not unreasonable to suppose, that the Divine wisdom which dwelt in our Saviour, did communicate it self to his humane Soul according to his Pleafure ; and so his humane Nature might at some times not know some Things.
