Not only does it illustrate how personal knowledge changes perspective. I couldn’t help but think of the incarnate knowledge, which God the Son, gained of humanity in the incarnation. He went from outsider knowledge of humanity to insider knowledge.
Though it would be wrong to ever suggest God ‘didn’t get us’ before. He certainly gained a special knowledge of humanity in the incarnation which makes Christ an effective high priest for us.
