I don't know. Maybe this will sound like a dumb question but what was the sin that Jesus was sinless from? I mean since Jesus was born of a woman and since He was a man of flesh and bones then how is it that Jesus was sinless? Did He not covet that toy his playmate had? Did He not sin when he failed to tell His parents He was going to stay back and chat a while with the elders?
I hope you get where I am going. I believe Jesus was sinless in the eyes of God so then what sin was He sinless from? If we can answer that then maybe we can better understand sin in our own lives.
Jesus never listened to anyone but the Father, therefore He never disobeyed. Sin came about because Eve listened to and engaged with the devil's attempt to get her to add to what God had said, showing it was her own idea that had kept her from disobedience. Jesus didn't do this with the word of God as seen in Mat 4 when He confronted the devil with 'it is written'.

This may be dumb as well, but isn't this "sin nature" thing taken a little too far?
I thought (or have now arrived at) that sin is disobedience to God. Plain and simple...Jesus never disobeyed God and hence was the perfect sinless sacrifice. This sin nature being achieved through DNA just doesn't fly with me anymore...
