Hebrews 2:5–18 (ESV)
The Founder of Salvation
5 For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. 6 It has been testified somewhere,
“What is man, that you are mindful of him,
or the son of man, that you care for him?
You made him for a little while lower than the angels;
you have crowned him with glory and honor,
putting everything in subjection under his feet.”
Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. 9 But
we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
I am going to write from a different perspective on today’s readings. The Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in the Trinity and believe that Jesus is an
angel. Today’s reading shoots this down in stating that Jesus is above the angles. He then is made lower than the angels in his human nature, but will be raised up again.
I pray: O Lord, help me to know that you are God and help me to keep my eyes focused on you. Amen.
