Yeshua Was Not Mere Mortal - Only Yeshua as God Reigns in Eternity

Reader comment on item: NATO's Turkey Challenge
in response to reader comment: Jesus is Jesus; God is God

[In response to the "Word" passage, EVERYTHING was created by the Logos, the spoken word of God. [["The word became flesh" in Adam]], just as much as it did in Jesus. John is not equating Jesus with God's word here; he is pointing out the fact that Jesus' existence and ministry is part and parcel of God's pre-ordained purpose.]

Therein lays the error........the WORD could not become flesh in Adam, since when Adam was created (not born, as Jesus was) he was sinless; therefore Jesus' sacrifice on the cross would not have made sense nor would have been necessary. Jesus born in the flesh through Mary (Gen 3:15) was the sinless 'tabernacle', by which means He was able to take my place for the sin debt I used to owe: therein lays my salvation in the Name of Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach. Baruch HaShem Adonai.
Were He not God, then the session He spent in the wilderness with Adversary would not have made sense, either; since, if the Adversary were making his advances to a mere mortal, He would have won: a mere mortal would not have been able to outwit the Adversary, but the opposite, like Adam, a perfect man until the fall, who lost through his own pride.
