V 3 …who was descended from David according to the flesh
The “flesh” meaning that Jesus, although God, was also man in that He had a real human nature. I don’t pretend to be a great bible scholar. I don’t’ pretend to understand all that statement means, but I do know that Jesus came here to earth to both save us and to show us how to live as children of God. He came and He was tempted yet never gave in. We of course will never be able to say that we don’t give in. We will sin; we are sinful creatures. However what Christ has shown us, through His humanity, is that we can say no to our flesh. We can NOT give in to it and stay sinless. He shows us how.
