Theological Term of the Week: Temptation of Christ

theological-term-of-the-week

This week’s term: Temptation of Christ – The truth that Jesus suffered all the objective assaults that Satan ever hurls upon any man, but that He, not being a fallen creature, was never subjectively tempted. That is to say, He never felt any impulse or inclination to yield to Satan’s invitations. 

Last week’s term:  Self-Limitation of Christ – The doctrine that Jesus Christ, being very God, all the while He was man, was not stripped of, or denied the infinitude of deity, but by perfect divine power and wisdom voluntarily limited Himself, so as to bear all the burdens of man, in whose stead He came to stand.
