Could Jesus Have Sinned? - Matt 4:1ff

Some say it was impossible for Jesus to sin, but consider Matthew 4:1 – “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.” This is followed by Satan tempting Jesus to sin in three different ways.Why would Satan even try to tempt Jesus to sin if it were impossible for Jesus to succumb?To say Jesus couldn’t have sinned makes the temptations of Jesus in this chapter (and elsewhere) a farce, since Jesus wasn’t truly tempted by Satan’s overtures.
