A circle cannot be a square

Then if God is untemptable, how could Jesus be God while in temptable human form?

In the same way that a geometric shape cannot at the same time be both a perfect circle and a perfect square, someone who can be tempted cannot be an untemptable deity.

Actually, a circle can be a square at the same time. It’s all a matter of perspective. Same with Jesus and God.

That’s the problem with assuming that it’s “all a matter of perspective”. It lets you choose the illusion over the reality.

One’s reality is based on perspective. The circle and the square is only that way because of the perspective (angle of viewing). What we perceive with our eyes from the video is from a two-dimensional viewpoint, so we perceive the shape as either a circle or a square depending on where we view it from. In actuality, it’s neither a circle or a square, but a 3-dimensional shape that has both the properties of a square and a circle when projected on a 2-D plane.

Likewise, God is not a 3-dimensional entity, but is beyond our dimensions. Since we are limited by our 3-D perspective and vocabulary, we cannot truly understand God’s actual nature, including what it means to be both temptable and non-temptable.
