So here are some questions that I have been wrestling with for awhile. Could Jesus have sinned? I know that he didn’t, but could he or did he just choose not to? And if he couldn’t sin, then were the temptations in Matthew 4 valid? I’ve been working on some answers, but just throwing those out there.

    i don’t really have an absolute answer… but as i’ve thought about it since you asked it… Christ is a bit of a mystery to be embraced, however if he was incapable of sin then he wouldn’t really be 100% human. if he wasn’t fully man then how does the truth of John chapter 1 really work as he’s the lived out example of what God speaks? and if Jesus couldn’t have actually sinned then the temptations weren’t valid… because as his people… what then do we have to relate to in Jesus if was not actually fully man? and if we cannot relate to Jesus… what is the point of this faith we have? it’s as valid as any other nice hypothesis…i have no clue if this makes sense. just adding to the puzzle see ya soon

  6. That is a prfound question… you must be a youth ministry guy.I would write out a lot of thoughts on this, but I’m gonna have to just tag team Rhett.I really do think that Jesus, in his humaness, had the “capacity” to sin. However, we must realize that he was really 200 %. 100 % Man, 100% God. This fact alone takes this argument out of the realm of human reasoning because in our world, 200% doesn’t really happen if you’re talking about what people are made of. I think it’s the 100% God that’s the key to your question. The temptation Jesus faced was 100% valid, but it’s the God part of him that made his resistance to temptation infinite. Again, just a thought.

  7. I didn’t mean to erase your comment. Sorry. School is great. I am getting involved with Campus Crusade and I joined a sorority (I know, crazy) that is always taking me out of my comfort zone but I love BG and am having a great time. I feel God will is really making me stronger for the future. Oh by the way congrats!!! Soon to be married Josh. Happy New Years!
