Did Jesus Ever Get Sick? Did He Use the Bathroom?

People often have so many questions about Jesus. After all, he is a very interesting individual, and perhaps one of the most interesting individuals in the history of the world. There is no doubt that if I could jump in a time machine and go back to any date, it would probably be at the time Jesus was entering his life’s work.

But people often have questions about the nature of Jesus. What was he like? How did he act? Did Jesus ever get sick? Did Jesus use the bathroom.

Did Jesus Ever Get Sick (Ill)? Did He Ever Use the Bathroom? Did He Burp or Even Have Gas?

In most cases, yes, Jesus could have become sick. He was human, and just looking at the Bible we can quickly see that he did all of the following: He ate, He drank, He felt hunger, He cried, He died, He was thirsty, He prayed, He feared, He bled, He performed miracles, suffered temptation, and more.

In the mix of all of that, Jesus most certainly could have became sick, if it was God the Father’s will for him to get sick. Jesus experienced almost everything that any ordinary human experiences within their lifetime. He was 100% God, but He was also 100% man. He would have had moments of happiness, and moments of anger. He would have had moments of sadness, and moments of triumph. The Bible says Jesus was tempted in all points, yet He was without sin (Hebrews 4:15).

Because of all of these human emotions and experiences, he would also have had to use the bathroom regularly. And yes, perhaps even burp, have an upset stomach, gas, and anything else. Moses, Elijah, Adam, Eve, Noah, and many other leaders and prophets would have been the exact same way.

Just because Jesus was human, does not discount His purpose or fullfillment on this Earth. It also doesn’t discount the fact that despite being 100% human, He was also 100% God in the flesh. Even so, Jesus Christ lived a sinless life and died on a cross for our sins.
