Evangelical writer Donald Macleod suggests that the sinless nature of Jesus Christ involves two elements. "First, Christ was free of actual sin." [47] Studying the gospels there is no reference to Jesus praying for the forgiveness of sin, nor confessing sin.

The Jerusalem Church was composed of the direct disciples of Jesus, and similar to their Rabbi - Jesus – they were observant Jews. On this picture, Jesus' sinless life is as much a part of his soteriologically relevant work as his suffering and death on the cross. On exegetical, options [for understanding the VIhsou/ Cristou/ (Jesus Christ): (1) "our Savior" alone, the central phrase (441).

The subject-matter with which the student of theology has to deal is offered to him in the deposit of faith and, reduced to its briefest form, is to be found in the Catechism. For instance, a man has always the unchanging morphe of manhood; that is what he essentially is; but he will have different schemata, different outward forms, in babyhood, childhood, youth, maturity and old age. His perfect humanity is the example to follow in all things good and godly, such as love (John 13:34). 10.

They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and tell of your power, to make known to the sons of men your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. But this does not mean that Christ did not give grace before He came.
