Did Jesus always know that he was God, or did he acquire that knowledge at some point during his childhood or adolescence? Were there things that Jesus didn't know when he was on earth? Did he know what was going to happen in the future? Was Jesus ever tempted to sin, or to despair? In this episode, we discuss the incredible mystery of the hypostatic union: Jesus as fully God and fully human. Support us on Patreon! Contact the podcast: crashcoursecatholicism@gmail.com.

Each of these miraculous hosts has been rigorously scientifically tested, often by scientists who had no idea where the samples they were testing had come from. These stories remind us of the loving and true presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Support us on ..read more
