An alternate title of this post is “Jesus Believed.”
Since we now know that Jesus is God, we may not be accustomed to thinking of His having had to exercise faith during His earthly life. Since He truly lived as a human being, though, He did need to live by faith…just as we need to live by faith.
He was a Jew – a descendant of Abraham. As such, His parents taught Him to appreciate the promises that God had given Him through His great ancestor Abraham. Jesus was also a descendant of David, which made Him eligible for even more promises.
Hebrews 12:2 – “Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith” – In this regard, consider Jesus’ role as a “forerunner” (Hebrews 6:20).
