Most of us poorness what's unexcelled for us and our precious ones. That's raw. But Jesus didn't subsist by his automatic existence. He lived by His Father's existence.

First-century Jews had an luxuriant complex of oaths, reported to extra-biblical Hebrew hagiographa. For example, curse "by Jerusalem" was not binding, but curse "toward Jerusalem" was unchangeable.
