At least one attribute about Jesus that is so wonderful is the fact that he came down to this earth as a MAN. This face to face relationship established the personable relationship as it came to God to man.
Whereas Jesus was perfect in reference to His spirit, he was still a man. As a man, he was able just like you and me to be wrong.
Let’s reason this out. Whereas some would suggest that Jesus was incapable of doing wrong, i.e., to sin, I maintain that what made Jesus so fantastic was the fact that just like you and me, he failed to sin even though he could just as easily as Adam. Yes, Jesus was capable of sin but in all ways, he remained in the good grace of His Father.
As a man, Jesus was subject to error in reasoning, which means he made mistakes. So to speak, if he had been in school taking Algebra, Jesus would not had made perfect scores. He was human, remember and subject to mistakes.
In one account even, and this is subject to interpretation, even God the Father was even sorry that he had made man and was going to zap them all until Moses ‘reasoned’ with Him. This suggests that even our Father can make mistakes, but again, this is subject to interpretation.
But when it comes to Jesus, the principle virtue of Him as a man is that He was subject to all things the same as you and me. If he didn’t have to struggle to endure or pass the test, then there would be no big deal to it. Yet, the opposite is true. The only real difference between Jesus or you and me is that Jesus was blameless in reference to sin.
I realize that some would think it sacrilegious to think that Jesus could ever be wrong. While this might be true and it might also be true that we’re not used to thinking about Jesus in these terms, to think otherwise ignores the greatness of our savior as Jesus’s role on this earth was anything but a piece of cake. This means that Jesus struggled day to day, not just on the cross and he struggled for he had the failings as a MAN. And since men must think and thinking can be flawed, there were times then that Jesus was wrong.
