We saw last time how Jesus is greater than the angels because he is the SON OF GOD. Now we are shown how he also was the SON OF MAN and became “a little lower than the angels”.
Jesus is not ashamed to call us (humans) his brothers. In the NT Jesus is referred to as:
- Son of God: 38 times, most of these references by others.
- Son of Man: 84 times, most of these references by himself.
