Paul, The Founder of Salvation or Was It Jesus the Christ?
The founder of salvation in Hebrew 2: 5-18, Paul, wrote that we learn from people who suffer. These verses are very difficult to eat. In modern times do you agree we all still suffer? I'm sorry to say, more than others, right? Paul talks specifically about believers of Jesus the Christ. The fact is one does not need to be a Christian to experience suffering. However, we still learn from them. It is for that individual to make that decision. As Christians, we gain knowledge and wisdom while learning of GOD through the prophets and disciples Jesus states in John 6: 45. Also, from people who inform us of their testimonies, experiences along with their trials and tribulations. In my opinion, I do not perceive how horrific going to the cross must have been for the King, the emotional trauma, the agony He must have gone through His entire ministry as well. His assurance of GOD is like no other. Jesus the Christ is truly our Lord and Savior if you take it.
5 For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. 6 It has been testified somewhere,Hebrew 2: 5-18
"What is man, that you are mindful of him, or the son of man, that you care for him? 7 You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor, 8 putting everything in subjection under his feet."
Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. 9 But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
10 For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering. 11 For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers, 12 saying,
"I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing your praise."
13 And again,
"I will put my trust in him."
"Behold, I and the children God has given me."
14 Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. 16 For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham. 17 Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
