Jesus and Humanity

For He has not subjected to angels the world to come that we are talking about. But one has somewhere testified:

What is man that You remember him,

or the son of man that You care for him?

You made him lower than the angels

for a short time;

You crowned him with glory and honor w

and subjected everything under his feet. x

For in subjecting everything to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. As it is, we do not yet see everything subjected to him. y But we do see Jesus—made lower than the angels for a short time so that by God’s grace He might taste death z for everyone—crowned with glory and honor a because of His suffering in death. b

10 For in bringing many sons to glory, it was entirely appropriate that God—all things exist for Him and through Him—should make the source c of their salvation perfect through sufferings. d 11 For the One who * sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. e That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them * brothers, f 12 saying:

I will proclaim Your name to My brothers;

I will sing hymns to You in the congregation. g h

13 Again, I will trust in Him. i And again, Here I am with the children God gave Me. j k

14 Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, Jesus also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death—that is, the Devil l15 and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death. m 16 For it is clear that He does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham’s offspring. n 17 Therefore, He had to be like His brothers in every way, so that He could become a merciful and faithful high priest in service o to God, to make * propitiation p for the sins of the people. q 18 For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.
