Four Year Olds Understand Transitive Relation?

Tonight after putting E in bed, I read her the story of Daniel and the Lion's Den. After we finished the book:

E: "Daddy, Jesus was in the story."
Me: "No E, Jesus wasn't in the story because Jesus wasn't here until after Daniel lived."
E: "Who saved Daniel?"
Me: "God."
E: "But Jesus is God!"
Me: "Ok, yes you're right, I guess Jesus was in the story."

Wow. I didn't know that four year olds could grasp the concept of transitive relations. She must be a genius. We should enroll her in a preschool Calculus class or something. Now, if she had quoted John 1:1 to me to prove that God and Jesus were one even during Daniel's time, that would have been really impressive! Maybe we should work on mathematical proofs next and then ease into the Calculus...
