Jesus never sinned

A selection of verses showing that Jesus Christ didn't sin.

Jesus challenged his fellow Jews to point out where he had sinned:

John 8 verse 46

46 Which of you convicts me of sin? If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me? 

Jesus Christ bore our sins despite the fact that he himself never sinned:

2 Corinthians 5 verse 21

21 For him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 

He had our nature and experienced the trials and temptations that we do, without sinning:

Hebrews 4 verse 15

15 For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin.

He is the example for believers to try and follow in resisting sin:

1 Peter 2 verses 21 - 23

21 For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving you an example, that you should follow his steps, 22 who didn’t sin, “neither was deceit found in his mouth.” 23 When he was cursed, he didn’t curse back. When he suffered, he didn’t threaten, but committed himself to him who judges righteously.
