“Jesus Increased . . . in Favour with God and Man”

Luke 2:52

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.”
