Jesus is the Son of Man (Woman)

Jesus’ mother was 100% human, and Jesus’ Father is 100% God.  Many times in the Bible, Jesus chose to refer to Himself as Son of Man.  He was, indeed, the firstborn child of Mary, who was a virgin at the time of Jesus’ conception.  Mary remained a virgin until after she gave birth to Jesus (Matthew 1:25).

In His humanity, Jesus experienced all of the same temptations that we experience: “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15 KJV).

As Hebrews shows us, Jesus did not ever succumb to temptation.  Jesus is the only human who can make that claim.  The rest of us have sinned at least once (Rom 3:23).  Although Jesus did not sin, He can and does empathize with us. He knows how we feel.
