How much faith is true faith. Jesus said in a number of time in the gospels " Oh, you of little faith." So, is complete faith the total lack of doubt?

ii3rittle- I believe you have a good answer. Thank you very much.
manatita44- As I had also mention to celafoe, no matter what the amount of faith Jesus had, He was amazing. And wish I had His full understanding of faith. Many thanks manatita for your answer too.
He was also good. Greatness or amazement, is no match for goodness. He was sanctioned from Above with an eternally blissful life, and brought down compassion, grace, forgiveness, love ... These are the lessons to us.
asking His father to take the cup is doubt?, how does that qualify that doubt? No man is brave without fear? . explain
Eric- this is one case where I would have a very hard time accepting the idea that Jesus had doubt in His faith. But what I do wonder is, in the absense of doubt, how much is complete faith? Many thans eric.
My friends, we are blessed to have Christ as a brother not just a Lord. He is our perfect friend.
Tough times came and He talked to Pappy. He said whoa, help me out here. I doubt that I am strong enough to do your will. Pappy answered Him.
celafore-I would suspect that Jesus would have to determine just how He saw Himself. As just a man or as a man who is the Son of God. And we also must take into account that He had the Holy Spirit within Him. This needs to be concidered. Thanks.
grace --the bible says He was a man,born as we are. the term He used to describe Himself so many times "son of Man " literally means a human being. so i believe it says he was like us in thoughts but sinless
Celafore- I completely agree with you. I was only adding to the point that as He must have realized His position as the Son Of God which would, I believe, remove doubt. I must state there is nothing in scriptrue to support this. It's only my opinion
as "only humans " we dont know , do we
celafore- I agree. But no matter how one looks at it, Jesus was amazing.
God bless celafore.
