Biblical:

NAU Hebrews 2:9 But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honour, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. 10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying, "I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE." 13 And again, "I WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM." And again, "BEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME." 14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16 For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham. 17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.

Born to Die:

NAU Hebrews 2:9 But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honour, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

  • Jesus came… as fully God but also…
  • Gal 4:4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, 5 so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons….
  •  But also as a child… fully human Luke 2:12 "This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
  • Child dedication service… we thank God for all the potential!!
  • Jesus is the perfect sacrifice…
    • Fully human
    • Fully God
    •  
    • … it is not an easy concept for fragile human beings to understand… the Jesus was Born to Die..
  • In Acts Paul needed to explain… Acts 17: 2 And according to Paul's custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3 explaining and giving evidence that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."
  • Sounds like a great plan…
    • The world is need of a Saviour
    • God supplies Himself as the answer
    • The death was brutal…
    • Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honour,
    • Phi 2: 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,
  • so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
    • 1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.
    • Death…  Rom 6:8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

  •  Jesus Christ our Perfect Saviour … Born to Die

Our Salvation Author

10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings.

  •  One thing to know…
  • Another thing to know through experience!! (Dog Bite)
  •  Hebrews 5:8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. 9 And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation
  • Author… understands the characters
  • Author… understands the plot
  • Author… created the opportunity for redemption!!
  •  John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.
  •  Gave us hope that we did not have
  •  Gave us the promise of life!
  •  Christ’s humanity… his temptation, his suffering…
  • Jesus Christ our Perfect Saviour… Our Salvation’s Author!

Our Sanctifier

 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying, "I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE." 13 And again, "I WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM." And again, "BEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME."

  • Jesus died the death of shame to cleanse us… He made it complete and eternal and our hope in His resurrection.
  •  When we stand with Christ we stand blameless… holy and sanctified… before the Father….
  •  Jesus Christ our Perfect Saviour … Christ is OUR SANCTIFIER 

Our Conqueror

14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.

  •  Ever wonder what it is like to be on the battlefield… maybe a high risk mission… and know that the generals are miles away in an office building (with A/C)… sending you in to risk life and life

  • When the grave holds no sway… when all of our eggs… (Easter if you like) are not just held in this Earthly basket…

  •  Jesus came as a Child

  • Jesus Christ our Perfect Saviour… JESUS CHRIST IS OUR CONQUEROR

Our Sympathizer

16 For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham. 17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
