“For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.”
A close reading of Hebrews shows us a Jesus who is depicted as a military champion. Champion warfare was still well known during the time of this writing.
Jesus is depicted as a champion who can fight, suffer and even die on behalf of the people, because He is also one of the people.
He is a champion and superior to the rest, yet one of the rest. He was sinless and God in every way yet human in every way as well.
This is essential to the Gospel, our champion fights and wins on our behalf. He is God yet He did it as a human who experienced what we experience.
