Truth For Life E6: Why Did Jesus Pray To Be Saved If He Is God, A Closer Look At Hebrews 5:7

Welcome to another edition of Truth For Life  originally posted on

Overview: I was on YouTube a few days ago and I found this video of a man who claimed that if Jesus was God how come HE prayed to be saved by God, basically referring to Hebrews 5:7. And he was boasting about how he was trapping Christians with this question. He was very proud of his achievement it seems. The interesting thing is that he is not the first person in History to ask this question. A messenger from God himself asked a similar question, John the Baptist. And I’ll show you where he did it, Matthew 3:13-17  Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented.

Today I want to talk about why Jesus offered up prayers to be saved by God if He is God, see video below
