One of Jehovah’s attributes is wisdom. His wisdom planned and ordered the entire universe. By wisdom, He designed the earth as a home for animal life – including the human family.
In Proverbs 8, the Logos (Jesus before he became human) also is personified by “wisdom”. These verses teach that the Logos was continually by the Father’s side assisting Jehovah in the entire creative process. The Logos’ hands shared in the formation of the planet and in the giving of life to man. He loved their creation, deeply.
Proverbs 8:22-31, “The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was…While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields…when he prepared the heavens, I was there. When he set a compass upon the face of the depth: when he established the clouds above…when he gave…his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him… and my delights were with the sons of men.”
By wisdom, God knew, before the world was even formed, that man would sin and would need a redeemer. Who would be better qualified than the Logos to pay the price of man’s redemption? Who better than this one who so deeply loved the man that he had shared in creating?
1 Peter 1:18-20, “…you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed…but with the precious blood of Christ…He was chosen before the creation of the world…”
So, the Logos became the man Jesus (John 1:14). By Jehovah’s wisdom came the testing and proving, the completing of Jesus’ love and obedience. This testing would prove his son’s character quality and depth beyond any question.
Philippians 2:7-8, “…he made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant…in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
Hebrews 5:7-9 “…Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. And having been made perfect, (complete, accomplished, or consummate in character) He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation…” (NAS)
Was it possible for Jesus to sin? Well, that was the whole test. Would Jesus resist sin under all temptations and painful circumstances? Unlike Satan and Adam, Jesus exercised his free will NOT to sin. Every fiber of his being now dwells in perfect love, in perfect righteousness. He has been thoroughly tested and proved, whereby we know that he will never deviate from that course.
John 8:34-35, “Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, truly…everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. And the slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever.’ ” (NAS)
Jesus is, and will forever remain, a faithful and loyal son of his father Jehovah God eternally.
