What I meant by my earlier post is that Jesus is God the Son... that He has and always had (even before the earth was formed) his own uniqueness from God The Father. But being sent to make atonement He became the Son of man also and you know that story goes.<quoted text>If you don't mind, I'd like to add that if our anointed Savior, like Father, could not be tempted, or was unable to sin, then his being tempted, all in all, was pointless, and makes null and void the fact that he conquered sin. None can't conquer what they never confront.
Additionally, he was our substitute on the cross. A substitute must, especially in the case of his sacrifice, identify perfectly with the initial subject, being susceptible to sin. As our sacrifice, he could not be unclean, nor a sinner, as such sacrifices were prohibited by the law. To avoid uncleanness, he was conceived without an earthly father. To remain perfect, he had to overcome every temptation while being just as susceptible to sin as we are. If he was not susceptible to sin, then he would not have been a proper, acceptable substitute.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
So being that the Son of God became the Son of man He could tempted by evil... but God, His Father, cannot be tempted by evil nor does He tempt anyone to do evil. In my understanding God the Son isn't and was never God The Father... He has always simply been God's Son.
