ChristNot everything is what it seems. Not all that glitters is gold. And not all gold glitters all the time. So was Jesus.

“You put all things under his control.” For when he put all things under his control, he left nothing outside of his control. At present we do not yet see all things under his control, but we see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by God’s grace he would experience death on behalf of everyone.
Hebrews 2:8-9 NET

In chapter 2, the author explains why Jesus became a human being. If he is superior to angels (chapter 1), why then did he become man? He answers what may have been a question of his readers.

As a man, the divinity of Jesus (1:3) was not evident. But he became a man in order to fulfill the mission of the Father, to experience death for all. In this condition, one does not see his supremacy, but now he has been crowned with glory and honor, at God’s right hand.

Don’t be deceived by Jesus’ human condition. He reached glory by the way of suffering.

And it will be no different for us.
