Could Jesus Have Sinned? - I Peter 2:21-22
Some say it was impossible for Jesus to sin, but consider I Pet 2:21-22 – “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth.”Our text says Jesus’ perfect life is an example for us to try to follow. But how could He be our example in avoiding sin if it were impossible for Him to sin in the first place? To be our perfect example, Jesus must have faced real temptation to sin like we do (Heb 4:15), and overcome it. That should be our goal – to do the same thing as He did – face temptation and overcome it.
