Did Jesus Inherit Original Sin ?

The consequences of the inherited sin/depravity theory would be that Jesus inherited sin/depravity, because He was a man. But contrary to that, Hebrews 4:15 says that Jesus was “without sin.”

Notice that Jesus:

• had the same flesh and blood as us – Hebrews 2:14a “… as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he (Jesus) also himself likewise took part of the same”

• was made like us – Hebrews 2:17a “Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren”

· was “tempted like as we are” – Hebrews 4:15

Jesus did not inherit sin or depravity, and since he is like us (we are like him), then neither do we !
