Best, W. E. (1986). Christ Could Not Be Tempted. Retrieved from

Since Christ did not have a sin nature, solicitation to do something contrary to God’s will could not be entertained in His holy thought. The New Testament Greek verb for tempt can also mean to test or to try; and the Greek noun for temptation can also mean a test or a trial This study will show there is no justification for translating these words as “temptation” or “to tempt” when they are used in reference to Jesus Christ. The perfect Son of God didn’t have a sin nature, so He couldn’t possibly be tempted.

We often hear about Jesus’ “temptation in the wilderness” or that He is “tempted just like we are.” The idea that Jesus Christ could be tempted is unfounded in the Biblical concept of Christ’s Person.
