Hebrews 2:5-9

The author of the Letter to the Hebrews continues by arguing that it is not the angels who are heirs of salvation, but human beings. While we are now seen to be lower than the angels, when the redemption of all things is accomplished, the age to come will be subject to human beings not to angels. It is not angels which Christ came to save, but human beings, and as a result of Christ being invested with authority over all things, human beings also have authority in Christ even over the angels.

One thought on “Hebrews 2:5-9

    > Thankyou for this, Chris. It fits well with other New Testament teaching about what is “above” (where Christ is) and what is “below”. You discussion of geography is well taken. You’ve challenged the nostrum that being in God’s image means being geographically centred in the physical universe. But how are we to understand the “not seeing” of all things subject to Him and the “seeing” of Jesus.
