The King Has Died – Hebrews 2:9-11
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,
The King has Died on behalf of his people. Jesus tasted the full measure of death so we merely experience a glancing blow. He tasted death for us so that we could close our eyes in death only to open them in God’s presence. Take heart, Jesus tasted death for us so that He could bring us safely home.
