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.
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).
