"But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the
angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and
honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for
every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and
by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to
make the captain of their salvation perfect through
sufferings...Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of
flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the
same; that through death he might destroy him that had the
power of death, that is, the devil;...For verily he took not
on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of
Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made
like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and
faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make
reconciliation for the sins of the people."
