Glad to have you back again for more Daily Bread. When we studied Chapter 1 of this letter from Paul to the Hebrews, Paul explained that Jesus was above Angels. Did the Hebrews believe in Angels? Absolutely. Many times in the Old Testament, messages of God were sent by an Angel of the Lord:

It's clear that the Jewish people are well versed in the scripture of the Old Testament, so Paul uses that to further confirm that Jesus really was who He said He was. Paul explains, that if you believe what the Angels of the Lord said was Truth, and Jesus is above angels, then, how can there be any doubt about Jesus' Word?

In short, Paul asks the Hebrews:

If you believe in the things the Angels said and every sin gets it's fair penalty, how do you expect to be pardoned if you don't believe in the Grace that the Lord spoke of through the Angels, then performed through Christ, and then confirmed through the Holy Spirit?

God hasn't put the Angels in power over the new world to come that we are talking about. But David testified, saying:

Psalms 8:4-6

4 What is man, that thou art mindful [you think of] of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest [care for] him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the Angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him [mankind] to have dominion [to rule] over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

This is the scripture David was talking about:

Genesis 1:28

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

So, there we were (humankind) ... And God gave us dominion over every living thing on earth. But we (humans) have a difficult time with self-control, let alone ruling every living thing on earth.

Hebrews 2:9-10 Good News Translation

9 But we do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the Angels, so that through God's grace He should die for everyone. We see Him now crowned with glory and honor because of the death He suffered [for us].
10 It was only right that God, who creates and preserves all things, should make Jesus perfect through suffering, in order to bring many children [us!] to share His glory. For Jesus is the one who leads them to salvation.

Hebrews 2:11 The Living Bible

11We who have been made holy by Jesus, now have the same Father he has. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call us his brothers.

Maybe Paul is pointing out to the Hebrews that there's a difference between quoting scripture, and fulfilling prophecy. Jesus wasn't just a copycat, He didn't just quote scripture, and He wasn't just a prophet. He was the fulfillment of the prophecy that was spoken of in these scriptures.

Since God's children are flesh and blood, Jesus also became flesh and blood because only as a human being could he die and in dying break the power of the devil who had the power of death. In this way He set free those who were slaves all their lives because of their Fear of Death.

Next Paul shows how the role of the high priest, and the procedure of making reconciliation for the people was really a shadow of what Jesus really did.

Hebrews 2:16-18 The Living Bible

16 We all know he did not come as an Angel but as a human being - yes, a Jew.
17 And it was necessary for Jesus to be like us, his brothers, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God, a Priest who would be both merciful to us and faithful to God in dealing with the sins [reconciliation] of the people.
18 For since He Himself has now been through suffering and temptation, he knows what it is like when we suffer and are tempted, and he is wonderfully able to help us.

Biblical Endurance in the Bible End

In the Old Testament, the high priest was the one who made reconciliation for the sins of the people. So, Jesus was both, the high priest and the sacrifice. Also, remember that the more special and pure something was, the better sacrifice it was. If you read the Old Testament, generally, sacrifices were male unblemished firstling lambs. Jesus was without sin. He was pure and unblemished, even though He suffered temptation as we do. He was the only perfect human being there ever was. And remaining perfect through suffering and temptation, He was the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind.

Be sure to come back soon, as next time, Paul gives the Hebrews a little history lesson about Moses, right here at Daily Bread.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
