Does Jesus Know All Things?

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
John 16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.
Matthew 24:36 and Mark 13:31 state that only the Father knows the time that Christ will return to the Earth. John 16:30 states that Jesus knows all things.
Matthew 24 and Mark 13 claims Jesus' knowledge is limited, yet John 16 claims his knowledge is complete.

Jesus was called the "Son of man" according to his manhood, and the "Son of God" according to his Godhood. Kind of like man on the outside, God on the inside, because he is God in the flesh(1 timothy 3:16). Jesus does know all things, but when it says in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that he doesnt, its refering to his "SON OF MAN" portion, which is the man; ie: the man does not know the time nor the hour, but the God does, which is "THE SON OF GOD".

Luke 2:52 "And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man."
So, when Jesus was younger, He didn't know all things yet while he was still a man. Growing up from boyhood, to manhood, He had to 'increase in wisdom' just like we do.
Now that He has ascended unto the Father, He DOES know all things.

i would have to say that when he humbled himself he gave up a lot of the things of his divine nature such as divine knowledge, but by his nature he is still divine. Phillipians talks about God humbling himself to be made a man. This kinda shows just how much Christ sacrificed. His sacrifice was much more then just dying for us.
