The Hardest Verse in the Bible?! (A look at Mark 13:32)

In this episode of Truthspresso I look at one passage deemed the hardest verse to explain from an article addressed to Christian writers:

Why did Jesus say He didn't know the day or hour of His return? If He's God incarnate, wouldn't He know this?

We look at four explanations and evaluate which one (or two) are the most likely.
