I love the way this was put:
I love the way Mark put this. It’s true. Jesus was God in the flesh. He came and lived a life that every one of us lives, except He lived the 0 A.D. version. Hebrews says He was tempted in every single way that we are tempted. That doesn’t mean He thought about looking at things on the Internet or had an easy and secret way to cheat on His taxes.
It means that when Jesus was here, He could do just the same thing Adam did and that all of us have done. He could have ignored God and lived by His own will.
Instead, He gave up His own will and lived for the Father’s will. That will sent Jesus to the cross for all of the rest of us.
