Jesus Is Greater... Because of His Humanity
Read Hebrews 2:5-18
“The incarnation is not a fable or myth, but a fact that changed the world." ~Asil Treblig
Christ Jesus took the form of human likeness so He could…
1. Restore our lost dominion. (5-9)
The fall lost it.
The cross regained it.
2. Restore us to a position of glory. (10-13)
Through His suffering we are complete.
Through His humanity we are family.
3. Destroy Satan and death. (14-16)
Set us free from death.
Set us free to live.
4. Become our sympathetic High Priest. (17,18)
His humanity makes him compassionate.
He knows our temptations and suffering.
