ANSWER: It seems to have been a part of the humiliation of the Son of God while on the earth that there should be a limit to his knowledge, not of future events, but of the dates of certain great crises such as the destruction of Jerusalem and his own second coming to judge the world. Why? It has not been revealed. Perhaps it was to bring him into perfect sympathy with us who know that certain events are in the future, but we do not know when. No man, except condemned murderers, knows the date of his future death, though he is certain of the event.
