Adam and Jesus

Adam was made a little lower than the angels. Adam was crowned with glory and honor. Everything was put under his feet. Adam died and lost that glory and honor.

Jesus was made a little lower than the angels. He is now crowned with glory and honor. Because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.

The death of Christ for everyone is the reason that Christ is now crowned with glory and honor.

He shared in our humanity so He could die. He died to destroy him who holds the power of death – that is the devil – and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

You can find all this in Hebrews, chapter 2.
