Jesus, God Among Us

in Jesus

Ever wonder why Jesus became one of us? Here's today's Bible Minute from Hebrews 2:17.

"Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren." Jesus had to become a man, not just so He could save us, but so He could show mercy to us. Understanding exactly all the things you and I are going through and yet not sinning in the process, He could be my high priest.

So when I take my problem to Him, He knows exactly what my problem is. He's been there; He's experienced that. Yet, He was and is perfect. So, Jesus is superior to the high priests of the Old Testament, because while they were human, they weren't divine. And Jesus as the God-Man brings to us the best of both worlds; the mercy of God and the mercy of a high priest who understands all of our needs.
