Jesus came to set us free from our sins and to save us so that we can be with God for eternity if we accept His salvation. • You might also like: How do you get saved according to the Bible?

Jesus is 100% God and Jesus is 100% human

Jesus is at the same time fully God and fully human. Jesus “had” to be born human so that He could die in our place. The Bible tells us that He became like us, a man of flesh and blood.

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.” (Hebrews 2, 14-18; NIV)

Jesus was human in every way. But does that mean he also sinned?

Was Jesus a sinner? What does the Bible say?

The Bible is very clear that Jesus never sinned. Here are three scriptures that prove this:

“But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin.”

1 John 3:5; NIV

Here we read that in him (i.e. Jesus) there is no sin.

“He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.”

1 Peter 2:22; NIV

Here we read that Jesus committed no sin.

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

2 Corinthians 5:21; NIV

And in this third Scripture we read that Jesus was without any sin. He had no sin.

So, we see from these Bible passages that Jesus never sinned and also has no sin in Him.

Jesus, our perfect sacrificial lamb

Jesus came into the world as a man and never sinned. He was the perfect sacrificial lamb without any sin. He was punished in our place because He took upon Himself all our sins. He paid the penalty in full and made us righteous (Colossians 1:22).
