Bible: Hebrews 2:5-9

Exposition of Psalm 8: Jesus and the Destiny of Humanity

2:5 For he did not put the world to come, 1  about which we are speaking, 2  under the control of angels. 2:6 Instead someone testified somewhere:

What is man that you think of him 3  or the son of man that you care for him?

2:7 You made him lower than the angels for a little while.

You crowned him with glory and honor. 4 

2:8 You put all things under his control.” 5 

For when he put all things under his control, he left nothing outside of his control. At present we do not yet see all things under his control, 6  2:9 but we see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, 7  now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, 8  so that by God’s grace he would experience 9  death on behalf of everyone.
