Jesus the Sinless

 

  Where in the New Testament does it say that Jesus was sinless and pure? Italics mine for emphasis, text in brackets mine:

  "The angel replied to [Mary]: 
  'The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
   and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.
   Therefore, the Holy One to be born will be called the Son Of God.'" Luke 1:35 

  Jesus said, "Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Who among you can convict me of sin? If I tell the truth, why don't you believe Me?" John 8:45-46

  "He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:21

  "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tested in every way as we are, yet without sin." Hebrews 4:15 

  "For this is the kind of high priest we need: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners,  nd exalted above the heavens. He doesn't need to offer sacrifices every day, as high priests do — first for their own sins, then for those of the people. He did this once for all when He offered Himself. For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak, but the promise of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son, who has been perfected forever." Hebrews 7:26-28

  "For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow, sprinkling those who are defiled, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to serve the living God?" Hebrews 9:13-14

  "For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps. He did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth; when He was reviled, He did not revile in return; when He was suffering, He did not threaten but entrusted Himself to the One who judges justly." 1 Peter 2:21-23

  "You know that He was revealed so that He might take away sins, and there is no sin in Him." 1 John 3:5
