Luke 2:40: And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him
Luke 4:1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert...to be tempted (after His baptism) . Luke
4:14 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside.
Im Lutherian not Catholic, so im not talking of Catholic doctorine but the way this issue was taught to us. And the idea of Calendar that it actually
started when Jesus was babtized is not new at all, the misundertanding is in Catholic doctorine as the thread states someone screwed up, believing
Jesus was a God right when he was born made the mess in Calendar dates, we all know that vatican have changed the bible many times even when there
were a witch hunts, vatican can even declare saints . He was special child but not God yet.
First we need to understand what was growing up to manhood in that era and judaism. We know Jesus was jew and he had jewish raising as a child he had
his Bar Mitzwah at age 12 he astonished his teachers and onlookers with his understanding and how he answered to their questions. At the age 12 boys
started to have more intensive training if they chose to go with that path. To get higher position and suitable for elections took a long time, men
were ready about the age 30-36. Jesus was also called as Rabbi so we expect him to go that path.
Luke 4:1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert...to be tempted (after His baptism)
So it pretty much tells us that he was not filled completely with Holy Spirit before that and in his baptism Jesus decided to follow the path God gave
him, thats basicly why we think Calendar starts from that time and not from his birth and seems like Vatican did screwed up somewhere.
