The Path Jesus Walked
—Paths of grace trilogy (2)

One special human being walked the ideal path, the right path that every soul should take. Jesus set us an example in the path he followed.

Jesus followed the perfect path (1Peter 2:21-24, Hebrews 9:14). Jesus lived his whole life without sin. He began the perfect path just as every human being does. He passed through the portal of conception into the state of innocence (transition 1). Jesus later passed from the state of innocence through the portal of physical death, into the state of hadean safety (transition 5). After that he was resurrected and ascended into heaven (transition 10).

1 Jesus was unique

There are four differences in the path that Jesus took compared to the path taken by other human beings.

2 Jesus was human

These differences make no difference. While the differences outlined above are important, they do not detract from the power of his life as an example to humankind. And Jesus was not altogether different: consider the similarities...

3 Jesus is our great example

Jesus set an example in walking the perfect path. The Bible is clear about that example. Everyone "should follow in his steps 'who commited no sin...'" (1Peter 2:21-22, Isaiah 53:9). However, we did not follow the perfect path.
