Could Jesus have succumbed to sin or was he impregnable to temptation?

Jesus was born a man. Although conceived by the spirit of God, he was, through his mother a descendant of Abraham and David. Matthew 1:1

He was thus the son of man as he frequently claimed to be. Matthew 8:20; 13:37; 20:28

He was made like his fellow man and tempted to sin exactly as we are. Mark 7:21-23; Hebrews 2:17; 4:15

Clearly Jesus could have sinned, otherwise his temptations would have been meaningless.

Jesus experienced the same weaknesses as we experience.Hebrews 5:2

The penalty for sin is death. Ezekiel 18:4

Jesus died but God raised him from the dead because he had not sinned during his life. Therefore God would not leave him in the grave. Acts 2:24; 1 Peter 2:21,22

Because Jesus overcame sin in himself, he became the perfect sacrifice to take away the sins of the faithful of all ages.
