Return to the previous - Part 34: "Jesus and others died and were raised back alive, but God cannot die"
Hebrews 4:15 “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet he did not sin.”
Jesus was tempted (but didn’t sin).
James 1:13-15 “When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full -grown, gives birth to death.”
Matthew 4:1 “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.”
Can God be tempted by the devil? In James 1:13-15 , it says that if you're tempted, you have "evil desires" in you.
Mark 1:12-13 “At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.”
If Jesus was tempted by Satan, it means he had evil desires in him, and God can’t be tempted by the devil, so it is a clear indication that Jesus can’t be God.
