Was Jesus capable of disobeying God’s commandments? The answer is Yes – he bore our nature and was tempted exactly as we are:

Hebrews 2:18  For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

Hebrews 4:15  For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

John 8:46 "Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me?

1 Peter 2:22  "Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth"

1 John 3:5  And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

Acts 2:24 "whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.
