1457. And Abram journeyed, going and journeying. That this signifies further progression, is evident from the signification of "to go," and "to journey." Among the ancients, travels, journeys, and sojournings, signified nothing else; hence also in the internal sense they signify nothing else in the Word. Here commence the Lord's advancements into knowledges. That the Lord was also instructed as are other men, may be seen in Luke:
The child* grew and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of His appearing to Israel (Luke 1:80).
The Child grew and waxed strong in spirit, and was filled with wisdom, and grace was upon Him (Luke 2:40).
Joseph and the mother of Jesus after three days found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions; and all that heard Him were amazed at His understanding and answers. Seeing Him they wondered; but He said unto them, How is it that ye sought Me? Knew ye not that I must be in the things that are My Father's? (Luke 2:46-49).
That He was then twelve years old, is stated in verse 42, of the same chapter. Again:
Then Jesus advanced in wisdom and in age, and in grace with God and men (Luke 2:52).
* This was John the Baptist, the Lord's forerunner. [Reviser.]
