5. In His humanity, of what nature did Christ partake?
"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the Devil." Heb. 2:14.
6. How fully did Christ share our common humanity?
"Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people." Verse 17.
NOTE. - In His humanity Christ partook of our sinful, fallen nature. If not, then He was not "made like unto His brethren," and was not "in all points tempted like as we are," did not overcome as we have to overcome, and is not, therefore, the complete and perfect Savior man needs and must have to be saved. The idea that Christ was born of an immaculate or sinless mother, inherited no tendencies to sin, and for this reason did not sin, removes from Him the realm of a fallen world, and from the very place where help is needed.
