The Sinless Jesus Christ


There are four areas that testify to the sinless nature of Jesus Christ. We will look at the testimony of Scripture, the testimony of the Saints, the testimony of Jesus himself, and the testimony of the enemy.

(Word of Caution! Normally the testimony of Satan or Demons would never be considered as truth. However, in the gospels they are recorded as crying out the truth about Jesus so in this case what they say can be trusted, because it is found in the Scriptures.)

 

 

 

The Testimony Of Scripture.

 

He was sinless before His birth:

Ps 45:7

7 You love righteousness and hate wickedness;

therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions

by anointing you with the oil of joy.

NIV

 

1 Peter 1:19-21

19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

NIV

 

He was sinless at his birth:

Luke 1:35-36

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.

NIV

 

He was sinless in the wilderness:

Matt 4:1-11

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:”‘He will command his angels concerning you,

and they will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'”

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'”

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

NIV

 

 

 

 

 

Sinless during His earthly ministry:

Heb 7:26-27

26 Such a high priest meets our need — one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. 27 Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people.

NIV

 

He was Sinless in the garden:

John 14:30

30 I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me,

NIV

 

He was sinless in His trial:

1 Peter 2:22

22 “He committed no sin,

and no deceit was found in his mouth.”

NIV

 

He was sinless on the cross:

2 Cor 5:21

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

NIV

 

He is Sinless even now in heaven:

1 John 3:5-6

And in him is no sin.

NIV

 

These are but a few verses that testify to the sinless nature of Christ. It is clear just through these verses that he was sinless; however, there are three other testimonies about Christ’s sinless nature that we still need to consider. They are the testimony of the saints, the testimony of Jesus Christ, and the testimony of Satan.
