Could Jesus Christ have sinned?

The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus never sinned (Hebrews 4:15). 
 However, theologians have discussed it at length. In technical terms, faultlessness is the teaching that Christ could not sin, though he could be (and was) tempted.

Believers generally agree that:
       Jesus never sinned, but he was tempted.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin (Heb. 4:15 NASB).

 Any temptations he faced were directed at His human nature, rather than His divine nature.
Let no one say when he is tempted, ‘I am being tempted by God’; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt any one (James 1:13 NASB).

Some theologians, have argued that Christ could have sinned. Their main argument is that temptation is not real unless there is a possibility of yielding to it.

Others (with whom I agree) make the following case for the idea that Jesus could not have sinned.

  • It is possible to attempt the impossible, and temptation is merely Satan’s attempt to lead us astray. Temptation and lack of ability to resist do not have to go together; only successful temptation always goes hand in hand with lack of ability to resist meaning a feeling of weakness, vulnerability.

  • All the temptations Jesus faced in Matthew 4 were genuine offers. The struggle in Gethsemane was a real, difficult experience. One might even say that Jesus experienced worse temptation than we do, because we usually surrender before the devil brings out his worst weapons. Jesus stayed firm through the most powerful temptations in Satan’s stash.

  • Although the human nature of Jesus may have had desires which temptation could target, His divine nature would ensure that He would never actually decide to sin.

  •  It is impossible to speculate on what Christ’s human will might have decided if it were operating independently of His divine nature; such a situation never arose.
        Christ’s divine attributes would make it impossible for him to sin:
                      Immutability -   His basic nature never changes. He was holy in eternity past, and                                                              He would remain holy now.
                    Hebrews 6:17-18 New Living Translation (NLT)
                                         God also bound himself with an oath, so that those who received the                                                           promise could be perfectly sure that he would never change his                                                                   mind. So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two                                                             things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie.                                                                Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great                                                                     confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us.
                  Omnipotence-       Falling to temptation shows moral weakness or lack of power and                                                             ability. Christ had infinite power, and was therefore not susceptible to                                                          sin.
               Colossians 1:6   “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible                                                              and invisible,whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—
                                                      all things were created through him and for him.”
                   Omniscience -      Satan tempts us by attempting to deceive us. Jesus had infinite                                                                    knowledge, so he could not be deceived.
                       Hebrews 4:13     And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open                                                         and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
