He overcame sin
For if Jesus was “God in the flesh,” he could not have been the second Adam who became a life giving spirit. Jesus was 100% man which allows us the ability to walk as Jesus did. If he was a God man we have no shot.
“But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one MAN, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. And not as it was by ONE that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by ONE to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification. For if by one MANs offence death reigned by ONE; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by ONE, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all MEN unto justification of life. For as by one MANS disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of ONE shall many be made righteous.”
Romans 5:15-19 KJV
A preexistence would have destroyed his humanity
