Jesus came to suffer death and save men—He came to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
3 How shall we aescape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is aman, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
7 Thou madest him a little lower than the aangels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his afeet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
12 Saying, I will declare thy aname unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put my atrust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
14 aForasmuch then as the children are partakers of bflesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might cdestroy him that had the power of ddeath, that is, the edevil;
15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to abondage.
17 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 areconciliation for the sins of the people.
