So from what I understand of Christianity from all my years trying to be one, is that one of the main tenents is that God sent Jesus, who was the Perfect Lamb, to die for our sins. I get that. It also states that he had to be pure in order for it to work... got that too. And that he was totally, 100% free of sin. That's where I get confused.
Part of human nature is to sin. We can't help it. We get jealous, we have sexual thoughts before marriage... these are things we can learn to control, but that control comes with practice... it is part of our nature, governed by hormones that we are born with and cannot control.
So... was Jesus human, and therefore sinful until he learned to control it, or was he inhuman or born with a disability like a missing hypothalamus or something?

in the lost scriptures
In what year were the "lost scriptures" written and by whom? The ones I'm acquainted with were written hundreds of years after Jesus' death by non-Christians, after the cannon of the NT was placed together, and are therefor ficticious.
