Hebrews 2:16-18

16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason he had to be made like them,[k] fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.


One response to “Hebrews 2:16-18

  1. Temptation is suffering…if we are pained by sin. If we hate sin like God does, it should grate on us to be faced with sin.

    Christ knew the pull and draw of sin, but He resisted His flesh to remain pure and to fulfill the Father’s purpose.
