Faultless may no longer be a word we commonly use, yet it’s still an important word in the Bible. That’s because Jesus was the faultless lamb of God who was slain to take away the sins of the world. He redeemed us back from Hell and we are now free to have a relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ. But what does the word faultless mean in Greek? Let’s take a look.
First, I want to define the word faultless by using the 1828 Noah Webster’s Dictionary:
“1. Without fault; not defective or imperfect; free from blemish; free from incorrectness; perfect; as a faultless poem or picture.
2. Free from vice or imperfection; as a faultless man.”
All scriptures are taken from NKJV unless otherwise marked.

“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.”

Jesus Christ was faultless in all His ways, yet He had to endure the punishment for all of our sins in order for us to be free and saved. He paid a tremendous debt that we would never be able to. Therefore, let’s honor God by presenting our lives a living sacrifice unto God.
