Acts 20

Jesus made fully human - Hebrews 2:5-18

5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking. 6 But there is a place where someone has testified:
‘What is mankind that you are mindful of them,
a son of man that you care for him?
7 You made them a little[a] lower than the angels;
you crowned them with glory and honour
8 and put everything under their feet.’
In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them. 9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honour because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. 12 He says,
‘I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters;
in the assembly I will sing your praises.’
13 And again,
‘I will put my trust in him.’
And again he says,
‘Here am I, and the children God has given me.’
14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death – that is, the devil – 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason he had to be made like them,[k] fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.


In Hebrews 1, we see that Jesus Christ was one being with God the Father. That Jesus Christ was fully God! We heard that Jesus Christ was called God's Son and that He was supreme to the prophets, the angels, Moses and Joshua, the Old Covenant with its priesthood and sacrificial system. That Jesus Christ was God's Appointed Heir and God’s Creative Agent. That Jesus Christ Personified God’s Glory was the Perfect Revelation of God and the Cosmic Sustainer... Last week, we thought this fascinating and often unread book was best seen as the transcript of a sermon rather than a letter addressed to a distinct group of people and that it dated originally to the 1st century, probably before the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in AD70. It was accepted as part of the canon of the Bible by the Eastern church early on and it wasn’t until the end of the 4th century that the Western church formally adopted it into the canon of Scripture.
