Jesus - of our sinful nature yet without sin - how does that work?
Jesus is often thought of as perfect, yet he had the same human nature as we do and faced the same challenges. I think these well-known words sum up the situation of Jesus - tempted and yet without sin.
18 For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
As well as being an example to us through not sinning, Jesus understands the challenges we face - because he has been there.
These verses bring out 2 important, additional points:
13 Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.
14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.
The first point is what we know already: Jesus cannot be God, because Jesus was tempted (Hebrews verses), yet God cannot be tempted.
The second point is that each one (and we have to include Jesus in this) is temped when he is carried away by his own lust.
But as we saw in the wilderness and throughout his life, Jesus never once gave into that temptation, making him the perfect sacrifice:
21 ........ a sacrifice ........ must be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no defect in it.
