Why Jesus can help us during temptation

Hebrews Bible Background

11.05.2017 – New Testament: Heb 2.18

To read the Bible in a year, read Hebrews 2 on November 5, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

We are flesh and blood. Therefore, Jesus took on flesh and blood that He might go through the experience of temptation and come out victorious. That being the case, the Bible says,

For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted (Hebrews 2.18). 

Jesus knows the full power of temptation, nevertheless, He never gave in to any temptation, but He did not accomplish such a great feat by miracle or something of that nature, no, He did it by living the word of God. We can do the same.

Questions:

  • What do you have to do to make the word of God powerful in your life?
  • How does your life go when you live it as directed by God?
