However, one might also expect to not ever completely “know” the Truth completely. That is because Jesus, the person, is also God, and that means that Truth cannot ever be fully and completely known on this side of eternity. And I kind of think that this is how Jesus prefers things. Because, based on what we can observe about Jesus, he seems to prefer the company of those who lack wisdom and are hungry for truth, rather than to spend time with those who believe that they already have all of the answers and only want to broadcast the solutions to everyone around them.
If I'm honest, I've spent a lot of my Christian life trying to be the guy who has all the answers. The Pharisees had all the answers too. They loved the status that being an "answer person" gave to them among all the seekers around them. However, the people around them still had questions, apparently. Because when Jesus shows up they ask Him a lot of questions. The funny thing was, when Jesus refused to answer their questions but instead gave them another question to consider, they looked at Him as someone who had authority that the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law (the ones who supposedly had all the answers) did not have.
I can remember hearing someone at a conference ask a question of the speaker. I knew the answer and I was expecting to hear this person explain everything, but instead the response given was, "That is a great question. I'm sure we'll explore that as we continue throughout our day."
At first I wanted to raise my hand and provide the answer. But, thankfully, I held back. Afterwards I went up to the speaker and I asked him why he hadn't answered the man's question. He looked at me and said, "Because the answer to that question is a key to the Kingdom. I can't give it to him. He needs to find it himself."
Later that day this same man raised his hand again and began to share what the Lord had been speaking to him about this same subject. As he spoke he started to break into tears. Those around him began to pray for him. He had found the key to the Kingdom. It was beginning to turn in his heart.
