Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
It’s one thing to be able to speak to someone about the trials and tribulations of our lives and for that person to sympathize with us. It’s quite another to speak to someone who has personal experience of whatever we’re going through and can therefore empathize with us, and understand more fully. The Lord Jesus is one who fully empathizes and it’s comforting to know that when we bring our issues to him, he says I know what you’re going through. And he means it!
