Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 2:52

_ _ See on Luke 2:40.

_ _ stature — or better, perhaps, as in the Margin, “age,” which implies the other. This is all the record we have of the next eighteen years of that wondrous life. What seasons of tranquil meditation over the lively oracles, and holy fellowship with His Father; what inlettings, on the one hand, of light, and love, and power from on high, and outgoings of filial supplication, freedom, love, and joy on the other, would these eighteen years contain! And would they not seem “but a few days” if they were so passed, however ardently He might long to be more directly “about His Father’s business?”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 2:41-52.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 2:52

Jesus increased in wisdom — As to his human nature, and in favour with God — In proportion to that increase. It plainly follows, that though a man were pure, even as Christ was pure, still he would have room to increase in holiness, and in consequence thereof to increase in the favour, as well as in the love of God.
