Yes, Jesus was sinless, and it is because Jesus was sinless that we have hope of an eternity in heaven. If Jesus were not sinless, there would be no sacrifice for sin. Adam and Eve's disobedience t...

Yes, Jesus Christ was definitely not sinful.

That is why His blood was so pure to be capable of washing the sins of the generations.

So He is our God, Holy and sinless.

One of my female coworkers where I work now told me that yes, Jesus had sinned in his lifetime. But when I asked this woman to show me in the Bible where it says Jesus sinned, she could not. Why? Cuz He never sinned!

As part of the external testimony, the Bible expressly declares that Jesus was sinless. The writer of Hebrews tells us that He was “holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners” (Heb. 7:26, NASB). Michael mentioned Hebrews 7:27 but forgot to mention Hebrews 7:26. At the announcement of His birth, an angel called Him “that Holy One who is to be born” (Luke 1:35). Pilate’s wife told her husband: “Have nothing to do with that just man.” Pilate himself said, “I find no fault in Him.” 

Charles Spurgeon expounds on Matthew 27:19.

A Sermon Delivered On Sunday Morning, February 26, 1882, By C. H. Spurgeon, At The Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington. *5/10/2013

When he sat down on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of him.” [Mt 27:19] …

The dying thief acknowledged the innocence of Jesus when he said, “this Man had done nothing wrong.” (Luke 23:41) --this thief acknowledged Jesus' righteousness: "This man had done nothing wrong." It didn't make any difference to the first thief if Jesus was right or wrong. If he could drive the getaway car—that's all that mattered. But it matters a lot to Jesus if we think his life was good or bad. Jesus does not want to drive a get-away car; he wants to be followed because we admire him. We must say with the thief: "This man has done nothing wrong." This man only does what is good. This man only speaks the truth. This man is worthy of our faith and allegiance and imitation. 

The centurion, at the foot of the cross, said, “Certainly this was a righteous man” (Luke 23:47). Even the demons recognized that Jesus was “the Holy One of God” (Luke 4:34).

And finally the apostle Paul boldly asserts that He “knew no sin” (2 Cor. 5:21) as has been already mentioned by Michael.

Yes, both God and Man. You can see when he went into the temple, lashing cords and turning over money tables he was enraged with anger, wanting to lash out in violence for the disrespect for the fathers temple (total man!) But then turned his anger into glory, glory to the father in witnessing to the Jewish council (Jehovah)...the perfect man.
