People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 2:18


Heb 2:18 In that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to sympathize with all who suffer and to succor them that are tempted, all who have trials and need help. These two chapters show that Christ is higher than the angels, and hence that the gospel is superior in its demands to the Law. They show that to Christ as the Son of Man, subjected to death, and glorified, all things have been subjected; that he becomes a brother to the saints, and that he took our nature, suffered, and tasted death, in order that he might become a faithful and merciful high priest, touched with a feeling of our infirmities, able to make atonement for us, and to come to us with an Elder Brother's help in every time of need.
