You do not know the day or the hour (Mk 13:32-13:32)

“But about that day

Or hour,

No one knows,

Neither the angels

In heaven,

Nor the Son,

But only the Father.”


Περὶ δὲ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης ἢ τῆς ὥρας οὐδεὶς οἶδεν, οὐδὲ οἱ ἄγγελοι ἐν οὐρανῷ οὐδὲ ὁ Υἱός, εἰ μὴ ὁ Πατήρ.


This is almost word for word in Matthew, chapter 24:36, but not in Luke.  Interesting enough, Mark indicated that Jesus said that no one would know the day or the hour (Περὶ δὲ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης ἢ τῆς ὥρας οὐδεὶς οἶδεν) of the end times.  Jesus emphasized that not even the angels in heaven (οὐδὲ οἱ ἄγγελοι ἐν οὐρανῶ) or the Son (οὐδὲ ὁ Υἱός) knew when this was going to happen.  Only the Father knew this (εἰ μὴ ὁ Πατὴρ).  This was such a big secret that no one knew when it was going to happen, since only the Father knew the exact day and time.  Thus, not even the Son knew this was going to take place.  Thus, this is another instance of the Son being subordinate in knowledge to the Father.
