The gospel according to Hebrews is that Jesus Christ has tasted death for every man (Hebrews 2:9). And, having tasted death, according to the will of God, Jesus has wrought a perfect redemption and the gift of life everlasting. The devil once had the power of death, but Jesus Christ, by dying and rising again from the dead has stripped him of the ability to hold mankind in his grip of fear (Hebrews 2:14-15). Jesus became flesh and blood to accomplish the eternal redemptive purpose of His Father. But by becoming man, He experienced our human pains and sorrows and is able to help us in those times of need (Hebrews 4:15,16).
