Did Yahshua Ever Sin?
It is commonly taught that Yahshua was always perfect. Understanding that perfection is a tall order to achieve, a fair question from inquiring minds is: does that teaching come from the scriptures? Let’s examine what has been written to see exactly what has been taught.
The High Priest
In John 5:46 Yahshua said: “If you believed in Mosheh you would believe in Me because he wrote about Me.” We know that Yahshua is a high priest, so let’s take a look at what Mosheh said about the high priest who would make the sacrifice for the people. Leviticus 9:7 tells us: “Mosheh then said to Aaron, "Come near to the altar and offer your sin offering and your burnt offering, that you may make atonement for yourself and for the people; then make the offering for the people, that you may make atonement for them, just as YHWH has commanded." Aaron was called into the position of high priest and so was Yahshua (Hebrews. 5:4-5). Notice: Mosheh told Aaron to "Come near to the altar and (first) offer your (own) sin offering and your burnt offering”. Without first offering for himself he would not be able to understand clearly how to “make the offering for the people”. It is clear to see that in the rituals that Mosheh laid out for the high priest, a pattern was conveyed that an individual needed to purge sin first before making atonement for the people (Leviticus 4:3). Mosheh was writing of a high priest to come, hence Deuteronomy 18:15 states: “YHWH your Father will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him”. This high priest to come was Yahshua and He stated just that in John 5:46.
Hebrews 1:3 tells us that: “After He (Yahshua) had provided purification for (His) sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” If He did not purge Himself of His lower nature He would not be able to sit down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
Hebrews 10:12 says: “But when this Priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of YHWH.” Certainly he could not, and would not have needed to provide purification for sins unless there were sins he had to be purified of. This was according to the pattern that Mosheh laid out for Aaron, a type of Yahshua, in the written law. Hebrews 7:27 tells us that: “Unlike the other high priests (which served only as a pattern of the true one Hebrews 8:5), He does not need to offer daily sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the sins of the people; He sacrificed for sin once for all (His own, by overcoming and for the people, through His example Leviticus 9:7; 16:11-15; 1 Peter 2:21) when He offered up Himself.”
Yahshua’s sacrifice to YHWH was to overcome, his lower nature (sin). That is the only reason why He had to provide purification for sins. He Himself stated in Revelation 3:21 that: “He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame (the lower nature, sin) and sat down with My Father on His throne.” There is no reason to tell the believers that they must overcome as He did if He had not experienced overcoming sin Himself just as the believers needed to do. He also had to have some sense of what the believer’s plight was in order to know what they had to endure while overcoming.
Hebrews 4:15 tells us that He knew the plight of those who had to overcome. It says: “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet was without sin.”
Many look at this scripture to make the case that Yahshua didn’t sin. However, this scripture did not state that He did not sin. It stated that He was without sin. If one is holding an apple, he is in possession of an apple. However, if he throws the apple away he is no longer in possession of that apple. In like manner, if one is holding on to sin, he is in possession of sin. However, if he throws the sin away, effectively overcoming it, he is no longer in possession of that sin. This is exactly what Yahshua meant when He said in Revelation 3:21: “He who overcomes (gets rid of the apple), I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame (got rid of the apple) and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
If Yahshua was always above being tempted or incapable of sinning, then we would not have a High Priest who understands our dilemma enough to make intercession for us day and night before the throne of YHWH (Romans 8:34).
If a rescuer only goes as low as the seventh floor from a nine story building’s roof top, how will he be able to know how to lead victims who are trapped in the basement of that building? He wouldn’t! He would need to go as low as the basement in order to see clearly enough to show the trapped victims how to follow him out of the basement and up to the roof.
In reality we are not speaking of being rescued from a building, but rather being shown the way that would help us in overcoming our faults. As Yahshua said in Matthew 7:5: “First take the beam, (fault) out of your eyes and then you will see clearly to show your brother how to remove the beam (fault) out of his eyes”. He would need to fall as low as we did in order to see clearly enough to show us how get back up from where we have fallen. The Scriptures say in Hebrews 5:7-9 that: Yahshua “learned obedience by the things that He suffered, (then) was made perfect (by overcoming His own lower nature, iniquities), and became the source of salvation,” as he was able through His lifestyle, “to leave us an example for us to follow” (I Peter 2:21). How can someone follow an example of another that they can’t copy? They can’t. They would need to follow the example of someone that could show them how to stop sinning and do righteousness from the point of weakness that they are at. However, if the example that was laid down for them to copy, in order to be saved, was not from their point of weakness and totally without sin, how would that example show them how to stop sinning? How could they duplicate that person’s example? They wouldn’t be able to identify with that individual’s example and that individual wouldn’t be able identify with their weakness.
In the book of Zechariah, the high priest Yahshua son of Yahzadak was a type of mental sigil representing Yahshua Messiah, as Aaron was also symbolically representing Yahshua Messiah in the Torah. Zechariah 3:2-4 gives us an indication of what was determined for Yahshua before He came into the world as that personality and overcame. It says: “And YHWH said to Satan: “YHWH rebukes you, Satan! Indeed, YHWH, who has chosen Yerusalem, rebukes you! Is not this man a firebrand snatched from the fire? Now Yahshua was clothed with filthy garments (sin) and standing before the malak of YHWH. He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying, "Remove the filthy garments (sin) from him." Again he said to him, "See, I have taken your iniquity (sin) away from you and will clothe you with festal robes.…"
If the filthy garments (sins) are removed from Him He no longer possesses it (sin) and therefore he is without it (Hebrews 4:15). Some believe that the prophet Zecharyah was speaking of the high priest Yahshua that was alive during his time and assisted in the rebuilding of the temple (Ezra 3:2; 5:2). Yes, that is who he said he saw in Zechariah 3:1. However, we must remember that this was a vision. The spirit world uses symbols most times in visions and dreams to represent the message that is desired to be conveyed to the physical world. The high priest Yahshua was being used as a symbol in the vision to represent YHWH’s salvation that was to come, which was manifested in Yahshua, the one called Messiah. The high priest Yahshua of Zechariah’s time was never snatched from the fire of this life. There is no evidence of his sins ever being cleansed, and him receiving festal robes physically or spiritually.
In Zechariah 6:11-13 we see that the prophet performed a ceremony as he received it from YHWH in which he used the high priest Yahshua as the sigil in performing the rite. He was instructed to: “Then take silver and gold, and make crowns (one of gold and the other of silver), and set them upon the head of Yahshua the son of Yahzadak, the high priest. And you are to tell him that this is what YHWH of Hosts says: ‘Behold, a man whose name is the Branch (Jeremiah 33:15), and He will branch out from His place and build the temple of YHWH (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 2:19-22). Yes, He will build the temple of YHWH (not one with hands Acts 7:48; Acts 17:24; 1 Kings 8:27; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 9:11); He will be clothed in splendor and will sit on His throne and rule. He will also be a priest on His throne (Jeremiah 23:5), and the counsel of peace (Isaiah 9:6-7) will be between the two offices (kingly and priestly).
The high priest Yahshua son of Yahzadak never ruled on any thrones as a king. In fact, there were no kings over Judah after the Babylonian captivity, which was more than seventy years before Zecharyah’s vision. The ceremony that Zecharyah performed was representing Yahshua who came to awaken humanity to the Spirit of our Source. He had to be cleansed. He overcame and showed all who would live by the example that he left to follow how to access the innate power that is our birthright and be temples of the Spirit of the Supreme Father.
Isaiah 59:15-17 gives us an indication of how Yahshua was able to overcome and then received the power to be our example: “Yes, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and YHWH saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no judgment. And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore His arm brought salvation unto Him (Yahshua); and His righteousness, it sustained Him (Yahshua). For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His (Yahshua) head; and He (Yahshua) put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.”
In I Timothy 2:5 the apostle Shaul identifies Yahshua as a man. It says: “For there is one Father and one mediator between YHWH and men, the man Yahshua.” He also identifies Yahshua as a man in 2 Corinthians 12:2-3.
Shaul stated in Romans 5:12 that: “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” This would include Yahshua whom Shaul said was a man.
1 Kings 8:46 says: "When they sin against You (for there is no man who does not sin).” If Yahshua was a man, and he was identified as such, this scripture must include him too.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 further tell us: “Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.” Once again, if Yahshua was a man, and he was identified as such, this scripture must include him too.
Romans 3:23 states: “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of YHWH…” Should we believe that the man Yahshua is excluded from the all that have sinned?
Psalm 53:3 and Romans 3:10-12 state: “As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one… there is no one who does good, not even one.” If Yahshua was a man as the scripture states, then all the previous scriptures speak of him as well as us. However, Yahshua set His mind to overcome, as we must set our minds to overcome. He stated that those who follow His example will do greater works than He did. All who follow Him have sinned, but will overcome. So, if we will do greater works than Yahshua and we have to overcome sin, why should we believe that Yahshua was always perfect and needed to live his entire life sinless in order to do lesser works than we who will overcome sin?
Matthew 3:15 tell us that Yahshua went to Yahchanan to be baptized and that Yahchanan was hesitant, but Yahshua answering said to Yahchanan: “Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Is it possible that Yahshua at this point believed that He was ready to fulfill all righteousness? It’s very possible. Baptism is a symbolic ritual cleansing that someone partakes in when they are ready to make the transition of cleansing the self from past inadequacies. Knowing this, why would a sinless person need to ritually cleanse his sins? One may ask: What about 2 Corinthians 5:21 which states: “YHWH made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of YHWH.”
Well let’s examine this one scripture that sticks out like a sore thumb. The word ‘knew’, as in ‘who knew no sin’ comes from the transliterated Greek word ‘Ginosko’. ‘Ginosko’ should have been rendered ‘came to know’, instead of ‘knew’. A transliteration is not the same as a translation. A transliteration is a type of conversion of a text from one script to another that involves swapping letters. It is not a true translation. The translators would write or print a letter or word using the closest corresponding letters of a different alphabet or language. Whether it was done deliberately, or by accident, this created a great deal of confusion to the reader. Without the confusion in this one scripture we would read the same text as: “YHWH made Him who came to know no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him (living by the example of Him who came to know no sin) we (also) might become the righteousness of YHWH.”
According to the scriptures as written in the Holy Bible Yahshua was not always perfect. He became perfect and therefore He is able to instruct and show us by way of an example that we can follow, how to become perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48).
Yahshua not only carried out His ministry successfully, He also overcame and was able to resist temptation, at least from the time that he was baptized. By doing so, He made the perfect sacrifice that opened His physical vessel for the indwelling of the Spirit of our Source, which qualified Him to become the perfect sacrifice, and an example for us all. As one believes, and does, as He did, their sins are also atoned for, thus taking away the world’s sins as the message reaches the hearts of those in the world (John 1:29; I John 2:2). He endured the pressures and pulls of the evil one, society and self—setting an example on how to become perfect for His brothers to follow.
Without Spot or Blemish
What does it mean to be without spot or blemish? Does the scripture teach that being without spot or blemish is never sinning for one’s whole lifetime? And did Yahshua have to be sinless all his life, as opposed to overcome sin, to be without spot or blemish?
Let’s examine what we find written in the scriptures. The law of Mosheh, which is a pattern of the true, requires a sacrifice to be without spot or blemish as we see in Exodus 12:5: “Your lamb must be an unblemished year-old male, and you may take it from the sheep or the goats.”
In Leviticus 1:3 it states: “If one's offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he is to offer an unblemished male. He must bring it to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting for its acceptance before the LORD.”
Leviticus 22:20 tell us that “You must not present anything with a defect, because it will not be accepted on your behalf.”
Ephesians 2:19-20 Teaches that “…the saints and members of YHWH’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Yahshua Messiah Himself as the cornerstone.” Let’s see what the foundation of the apostles and prophets teach us about the subject.
The prophet Isayah help us to unfold the intent of the law, by telling us Isaiah in 1:16-18 that if we turn from our sins, even though our sins are like scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are as red as crimson, they will become like wool.
The apostle Kepha unfold even more of the law’s intent for us in his letter to his contemporary believers when he wrote in 2 Peter 3:14: “Therefore, beloved, as you anticipate these things, make every effort to be found at peace with Him, without spot or blemish.” He was writing to men and women who had sinned during their lifetimes yet he was telling them to make every effort to be… without spot or blemish. We can see from Kepha’s letter that one does not have to be sinless their entire life to be without spot or blemish.
The apostle Shaul further writes in Philippians 2:15: “so that you may be blameless and pure, children of YHWH without fault in a crooked and perverse generation, in which you shine as lights in the world.” His letter was also to his contemporary believers who were not sinless for their whole lives.
In 1 Thessalonians 5:23, the same apostle writes more saying: “Now may YHWH of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your entire spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our ruler Yahshua Messiah.”
I Timothy 6:14 says: “Keep this commandment without stain or reproach until the appearance of our Ruler Yahshua Messiah.”
The five wise and five foolish virgins that are mentioned at the beginning of Matthew 25, were not always without spot or blemish, but they were without spot and blemish (virgins, restored, cleansed), at the time that they were awaiting the bridegroom.
The previous scriptures were not referring to Yahshua, but to anyone who seeks to overcome. So we can see that one does not have to be sinless for their entire life to become blameless, spotless, without blemish, stain, or reproach, and white as wool; or snow (overcome sin). Yahshua was the lamb of YHWH without spot or blemish, but that does not mean that He never sinned and the scripture does not refer to Him as having never sinned.
The scriptures teach in Hebrew 1:3 that: “After He had provided purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”
Some translations, such as the KJV, say “our”, as in “purged our sins” instead of “purification for sins”. However, nothing remotely close to “our” can be found in the Greek text. Therefore that should not have been part of the translation, which means that someone put it there and we will know the motive when all things are revealed.
With this in mind we must ask ourselves: whose sins did Yahshua purify. Well it can’t be our sins since we have to follow His example first to benefit. The world would have to do the same thing and it still sins, so it can’t be the world. It can only be He provided purification for His own sins, He had provided purification for His sins first and after we follow His example, we benefit from following Him as well. Leviticus 9:7 seems to be telling the pattern that Yahshua would follow when it states: "Come near to the altar and (first) offer your (own) sin offering and your burnt offering”.
We Needed a Perfect Person to Die For Our Sins
Was every sinner saved by Yahshua’s death? If they were, would there be sin for them to overcome? If Yahshua saved everyone who sinned, there would be no sin for them to overcome, because His act would have been accepted for everyone’s errors.
The scriptures teach that Yahshua lived and taught us how we should live to be saved. It is written by the apostle Yahchanan that Yahshua Himself taught them in John 13:15 that “I have set you an example so that you should do as I have done for you.”
Yahchanan also wrote in 1 John 2:6: “Whoever claims to abide in Him must walk as Jesus walked.”
His apostle Kepha taught and wrote the same thing in 1 Peter 2:21: “For to this you were called, because Messiah also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in His footsteps.”
The apostle Shaul taught and wrote in 1 Corinthians 11:1: “You are to imitate me, just as I imitate Messiah.”. If we don’t follow the example there is no salvation, meaning: He didn’t do it for us, we must do it for ourselves, by imitating Him. Therefore if we live by the example that he taught and lived, we too will be saved. If we don’t imitate Him, his example can’t help us.
Man Is Powerless to Cleanse Himself Without Yahshua’s Sacrifice
Is man powerless to cleanse himself without Yahshua’s sacrifice? That has been taught my many for a very long time. However, what does the scripture really teach? Let’s examine this topic.
The apostle Shaul writes in Hebrews 12:22-23 that “there are spirits of the righteous ones in heaven who have been made perfect.” If they were made perfect, that could only mean that they had the power to cleanse themselves in some manner.
In Matthew 9:13 it is written that Yahshua said: “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
In Luke 5:32 it is also written that Yahshua said: “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." If man was powerless to cleanse himself Yahshua would have also come for the righteous. But He didn’t come for the righteous because the righteous are not sick. They have the power to follow the Spirit of YHWH, which is the example that Yahshua lived by.
The apostle Shaul also wrote in I Timothy 1:15 saying: Yahshua Messiah came into the world to save sinners. If there were righteous men Yahshua would have no need to cleanse them as He said: “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." Then who came for the righteous? They would have to cleanse themselves.
As stated previously, the Law of Mosheh is a pattern of the true law. In the pattern we read in Leviticus 25:47-49: “If a foreigner or temporary resident living among you prospers, but your brother dwelling near him becomes poor and sells himself to the foreigner or to a member of his clan, he retains the right of redemption after he has sold himself. One of his brothers may redeem him: either his uncle or cousin or any close relative from his clan may redeem him. Or if he prospers, he may redeem himself.” We can see here that if a man sells himself if he has the power, he may redeem himself. If he redeems himself he does not need a redeemer.
We sold ourselves, which created our fall. In his letter to the congregation at Rome, the apostle Shaul wrote: “I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin.” Most of humanity is as Shaul and needs to be redeemed with a price: as it is written in Leviticus 25:48: “…his uncle or cousin, or any close relative from his clan may redeem him.” Therefore Yahshua paid the price for the original sin of Adam. However, His life (blood) must be accepted as an example for sinners to follow in order to be reconnected to the Holy Spirit of the Father within them, hence redemption from serving self and the whims of men to serving a higher purpose.
Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and the entire flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the family of YHWH, which He purchased with His own blood (life).”
The apostle Shaul wrote in I Corinthians 7:23:”You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.”
I Corinthians 6:19-20: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from YHWH? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify YHWH with your body.”
Yahshua came to be an example for sinners to turn them from their sins to righteousness. It is our righteousness that saves us, no one else can. They can only show the way, as Yahshua did, so we follow along and turn from own sins. There is no sin that cannot be pardoned, except the ones we refuse to turn from.
Ezekiel 14:14 tell us that: “…even if these three men— Noah, Daniel, and Job— were in it, their righteousness could deliver only themselves, declares the YHWH.” Of course that is if their righteousness is lines up with the principles of the Father. “Yahshua died leaving an example for us (sinners) to follow” according to 1 Peter 2:21. Those of us who have faults, if we follow his example, will become without spot and blemish and be redeemed from among men as He was. So we can see that we will be saved by our own works of doing right, no one will, or can cleanse us, but ourselves.
Revelation 14:4-5: tell us that: “These (who follow his example) are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they are virgins (pure, spotless, without blemish). They follow the Lamb wherever He goes (follow his example). They have been redeemed from among men as first fruits to YHWH and to the Lamb. And no lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless (pure, spotless, without blemish).”
His Blood Cleanses Man
The scriptures tell us in Hebrews 9:12 that Yahshua “…entered the Most Holy Place once for all by His own blood, thus securing eternal redemption.” What was Yahshua’s blood and how did he go into the Most Holy Place with his own blood?
John 19:33-34 tell us that “when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water flowed out.” So His blood was poured out upon the earth right after he was killed.
Luke 24:39 tell us that Yahshua told Thomas to “Look at My hands and My feet. It is I Myself. Touch Me and see— for a spirit does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.” He had flesh and bones, but no blood when he appeared to the apostle in the room. So He had no physical blood to go into the Most Holy Place with. Therefore the blood is figurative not literal.
The animal blood, through which atonement was made under the law of Mosheh (Leviticus 17:11), was just a pattern, a symbol of its life. The symbolic blood of Yahshua, or the life that He lived was also an example, as it is written: “To this you were called, because Messiah suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps.” If we follow his example we would also make atonement for our own lives by His blood (example). It is said in Deuteronomy 12:23: “the blood is the life”. Also in Leviticus 17:11, 14: “The life of a creature is in the blood.” The blood is symbolic of life - our way of life.
Yahshua referred to His blood being his life when he said in John 6:54: “Whoever eats (partakes of) My flesh (nature) and drinks (assimilate) My blood (way of life) has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is real food, and My blood is real drink.” Notice His blood (way of life) “has eternal life”. However, only for those who emulate it. Notice also that it’s “whoever” does as He did. Yahshua does not eat and drink for “whoever”.
1 John 1:7: says: “if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood (way of life, life example) of Yahshua His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
Notice, we must first walk in the light that He is in, in order to have His blood (life example) cleanse us. Hence, we must live as He lived to be washed clean of sins, in order to be without spot and blemish.
Then if we remain without blemish, until Messiah’s Spirit re-enters the earth, or “His coming” we would also be raised us up to the same Messiah frequency as He is, on the last day.1 Timothy 6:14 and 1 Thessalonians 5:23.
Adopting Yahshua’s lifestyle gives us the power to conquer evil As it is written in Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood (living the example) of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they did not love their lives so as to shy away from death” . Yahshua was cleansed by His way of life and if we follow that example we will also be cleansed as He.
What most Christian schools of thought don’t teach is the fact that Yahshua lived His early life in pursuit of total balance and overcame sin. After He overcame sin He went to get baptized. 2 Peter 1:17 says that Yahshua “received honor and glory from YHWH the Father when (not before) the voice from the Majestic Glory said to Him (in Matthew 3:17), “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Not that Yahshua was the beloved Son but that which He perceived entering into Him in Matthew 3:16 was the only begotten Son. Matthew 17:5 tells us that the apostles also heard this voice while they were with Him later on in His ministry. Therefore there was a change in the man Yahshua from the moment He came up out of the water. He was possessed by the Spirit of the Only Begotten Son. With this Seed, the Seed of the Father, in Him He never sinned again.
With the Seed of the Father in Him, He was able to align all aspects of Himself and thus was “able to open the scroll and its seven seals” as Revelation 5:5 tell us: “… See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
Yahshua triumphed because He was the only one so far to die and reanimate the redemptive body, therefore conquering death in the flesh. However, many have opened the scroll of the soul and its seven seals in the body. Those who follow His example are also able to open the scroll and seven seals, and will also conquer death through the redemptive body at the second coming of the Spirit of Messiah (the Only Begotten Son).
After Yahshua was betrayed, and while He was on the stake, the Only Begotten Son, whom entered him during baptism, departed from Him. As the Son left, darkness fell upon the land as this most powerful force exited the physical world as we read in Matthew 27:45: “From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land.” Then “about the ninth hour, Yahshua cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My Strength (the Power that sustains all), My Strength, why have you forsaken Me?”
If the Only Begotten Son did not leave the man Yahshua, the physical body would not have been able to die, because the Son is not subject to death therefore remaining in Yahshua would make his mortal body also not subject to death, which was necessary to balance the debt of Adam.
After three days and three nights, the spirit of Yahshua returned from the Son, to whom He committed it to (Matthew 27:50). Having now atoned with the Only Begotten Son He was able to reanimate the body he surrendered to death, i.e., the mortal put on immortality (1 Corinthians 15:54).
