We know that a veil of forgetfulness is placed over us at the time of our birth. I’m wondering if the same happened to the Savior at his birth? Do we know if a veil was placed over his mind the same as ours?



Part of this answer is speculation and part may be answered with scriptures, so please bear with me.

Luke 2:52

52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

mormon baby jesusThis tells me that His understanding increased over his life. Did he have a veil? Sure, in the beginning. As He grew, His mind would be open to the insight and revelation from the Father.

I would think it would be difficult to be one of the original teachers of His gospel without having revelation and divine communication with the Father.
