Did he learn things "apart from his will," as you suggest in your question? I believe not. Jesus' form of learning was both similar to and different from the way we humans learn. Unlike us, Jesus learned through experience , and not through the line-upon-line, precept-upon-precept sort of learning we humans engage in though we too can learn from experience, as when "we learn a lesson"--one hopes--by getting caught in a lie!
When Jesus realized power had gone out from him, he was in touch with the power of God in a way we as humans--even Spirit-empowered humans--could never experience. When he "realized" the woman was healed, he transformed her healing into an opportunity to teach both the healed woman and his followers. Sign up to join this community.

Many most miracles of Jesus seem to have in common these factors: They are occasioned by sympathy and compassion for people in difficulty; They are deliberately operated by Jesus to remedy the situation of difficulty, and, at the same time as an occasion to affirm that the coming of the Kingdom of God is made manifest in his miracles.

Enjoy your time with us. Don Don. Another "welcome! Can you sharpen what it is that requires an answer? I would add a 3 to your common features: typically not always Jesus' healing miracles are initiated by the sufferer they seek Jesus' help.

The Woman with Issues (of blood)
Please take our site tour. As David pointed out, it is difficult to discern in here what the question is. Can you focus this more and make it clear what you are asking and which specific text you are asking about? Miguel de Servet I have to agree with daen-your 'question' is more of a discussion than a query.
Women of the Bible: The Woman with the Issue of Blood
My suspicion is that it will require a major 're-write' to simply ask a question, rather than injecting what you perceive the solution to be. Remember-you can answer your own question, and you should keep the question a question, and save the answer for an answer. The question was clear enough for rhetorician to provide an answer.
Anyway, the text is Mark The essential question is: is it only my impression, or does Mark's text read without apologetic intention make it appear as though Jesus was unaware that the woman was approaching him, until she touched him, and "drew" healing power from him? MigueldeServet: Yeah, your Q was clear enough to me. The more I think about it, however, the less clear my answer becomes!
Not for a minute do I think Jesus ceased being God. He was and always will be fully God. That he happened to be and always will be fully human makes incidents like the healing of the woman with the issue of blood more than a little shrouded in mystery. Beats me. Since Jesus was continuously in touch with his Father, could the Father have nudged Jesus when the woman touched his garment? That's something to think about. I still have questions. Luke says, "And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her.
She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

When they all denied it, Peter said, 'Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. Then he said to her, 'Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace. He wanted the woman and the crowd to know that His garments had not caused her to be healed, but the strength of her faith.
Over and over again we read that faith was the key, as in this situation, that led to healing. When He healed two blind men. He said, "According to your faith will it be done to you" Matthew Acts says, "By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong.
It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see. In Mark it says that few were healed and Jesus "was amazed at their lack of faith. But Scripture reports that healings did not take place in a variety of other situations. Paul, a tremendous man of faith and a mighty minister in the early church said about his own infirmity in 2 Corinthians "To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Psalm says, "It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. When Jesus was told that His friend Lazarus was sick, he remained where he was for two more days, saying, "This sickness will not end in death.
No, it is for God's glory. When Jesus arrived at the location, Lazarus was dead.
