Context Readings

Jesus Became One Of Us To Help Us

17 So, for this reason, He had to become like His brothers in every way [i.e., except that He never sinned], so that He could become a merciful and faithful Head Priest in things related to God's [service], [and] that He could provide a means of purifying [Lev. 16:30] for people's sins [i.e., make atonement for them]. 18 For since He Himself suffered when He was tempted, He is [also] able to help those who [suffer when they] are tempted.
