“Jesus Increased . . . in Favour with God and Man”
52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Elder James E. Talmage wrote:
“Jesus was all that a boy should be, for His development was unretarded by the dragging weight of sin; He loved and obeyed the truth and therefore was free.”
(Jesus the Christ, 3rd ed. , 112.)
