Hebrews 2:17 (NIV)
For this reason, he (Jesus) had to be made like His brothers in every way, in order that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that He might make atonement for the sins of the people.
Luke focuses on Christ’s humanity. Hebrews unpacks the indications of that reality. He is “like us” in his descent from man (with his genealogy traced to Adam). He is “without prejudices or favoritism, which is why Luke ignores all privilege of race, caste, or training by ignoring Abraham and tracing the ancestry of the Redeemer to Adam.” *He is one with us in dependence upon God in all the crises of life (Luke 6:12). He was tempted like we are (Heb. 4:16) in that he was challenged by the devil. He was touched with the feelings of our infirmities (Heb 4:15) as seen in his compassion for widows (7:11-15), the unfortunate (10:30-37), the sick (13:10-17) and the lost (15:3-7). He knows us best and intercedes for us (Heb. 4:15). You can trust Him with your life.
