How Jesus Became More Perfect

For it was fitting that he,
for whom and through whom all things exist,
in bringing many children to glory,
should make the leader to their salvation perfect through suffering.

Hebrews 2:10

This verse struck me today. God the Father made Jesus, “leader to our salvation” PERFECT… through SUFFERING.

How could Jesus the Godhead be made more perfect?

He was perfected as our leader to salvation.

Why do we need salvation? Because of sin, suffering.

Jesus was finally able to lead us OUT of that sin & suffering when he perfectly understood our human suffering.  Jesus was made into the perfect savior, through suffering.

Wow!

  1. Yes, I agree! If I may also add: Prior to His Passion on the Cross, suffering had no redeeming value. If a person suffered from a disease or a misfortune (i.e., Book of Job), it meant he was probably a sinner being punished by God. Jesus’ suffering gave all suffering redemptive value. Thanks for sharing!
