It is written that He had a human nature and a human will, but that He overcame and never sinned. - Throughout Scripture God says to be perfect.
Matthew - Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Read More Hebrews - For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, Luke - I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Matthew - Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go [and] sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come [and] follow me.

What does the Bible say about? For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. No one comes to the Father except through me. Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
