For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Hebrews 2:10 (KJV)
Whom does your eternity rest upon? Yourself or some long dead and returned to dust figure from history? Modern culture would have you believe that you are the source of all power and can just do it. The Captain of our Salvation is one who was willing to suffer for us, when we did not deserve his mercy. His suffering was perfect in its payment for our sins paving the way to reconciliation to God. -Mike
John Gill Comments: him it became–to make the Captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings; Christ is “the Captain of salvation”, and is so called, because he is the author of it; and he is the Prince and Commander of these sons, who are committed to his charge, and are under his care; and is their guide and leader; and who is gone before them to prepare their mansions of glory for them: and he is made “perfect through sufferings”; he suffered all that the law and justice of God could require; and hereby he became perfectly acquainted with the sufferings of his people, and a perfect Saviour of them; and in this way went to glory himself: and it “became” God the Father, the first cause, and last end of all things, since he had a design to bring all his adopted sons to glory, that his own Son should perfectly suffer for them; this was agreeable to, and becoming the perfections of his nature, his wisdom, his veracity, his justice, grace, and mercy.
