IX.3. Why Doesn’t God Know the Day and the Hour?

Question:  In Mark 13:32 the Bible says,

"But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father."

I don‘t understand. If Christ is God, how can He not know, as God does, when His own return will be?

Answer:  The answer lies in the little word "but." The Greek word translated "but" by the translators is "ei" meaning "if " and "mi" meaning "not." The proper translation would be "neither the Son, if not the Father." This simply emphasizes the fact that... what the Father knows the Son knows, and what the Son knows the Father knows.
