What is "tefillin" ? Did Christ wear it on His arm and head too, every year through out his ministry?

There is no indication Yeshua laid tefillin (i.e., phylacteries), though perhaps he did as a child. Later, his teaching repeatedly stressed the spiritual aspects of these sorts of commandments, and he faulted the rabbis of his day for not understanding the deeper meaning and symbolism of the Torah's rituals...
