Jesus is the reason Emmanuel exists.
Jesus was the perfect man:
- He was not a sinner by nature because of the virgin birth. Matthew 1:18
- He was not a sinner by choice. Hebrews 4:15
Jesus was the perfect sacrifice:
- He could die for your sins because He was a man. 1 Timothy 2:5
- He could die for the sin of the entire world because He was God. John 14:9-11
- He proved that He had the power to forgive sin because He rose from the dead. Matthew 28:1-7
