Hebrews 2:5-9 Episode 3 - The Son of Man Crowned with Glory and Honor
October 30, 2018 | Andrew Davis
Incarnation, Humiliation of Christ, Exaltation of Christ
The author quotes Psalm 8 and ascribes it to Jesus as the perfect man, temporarily made a little lower than angels, ultimately exalted above the heavens, temporarily suffering death, ultimately crowned with glory and honor, ruling over the world to come. Therefore the author is showing that Jesus seems to be lower than He really is, because in His earthly mission He humbled Himself even to death on a cross. The author is also declaring that, in the end, Jesus will reign over angels and all the new creation.
