5 God didn't put angels in charge of this business of salvation that we're dealing with here.
6 It says in Scripture, What is man and woman that you bother with them; why take a second look their way?
7 You made them not quite as high as angels, bright with Eden's dawn light;
8 Then you put them in charge of your entire handcrafted world.
9 What we do see is Jesus, made "not quite as high as angels," and then, through the experience of death, crowned so much higher than any angel, with a glory "bright with Eden's dawn light." In that death, by God's grace, he fully experienced death in every person's place.
