How is that possible? King Solomon himself affirmed that everybody sins:

When they sin against you—for there is no one who does not sin… (1 Kings 8:46, NIV)

Yet Jesus said to his listeners:

“Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?” (John 8:46, NIV)

The reason why Jesus was sinless—and could therefore be our own sin-bearer—is in the next section.
