It is claimed that Hebrews 2:9 says that Jesus was made for a while “lower than the angels” at his incarnation, which word in trinitarian terminology is used to mean the doctrine that the alleged second person of the alleged trinity assumed human form in the person of Jesus Christ and is therefore completely both God [Supreme Being] and man [human being], possessing two alleged natures at once. Do we find anything of such an idea in Hebrews 2:9? No at all!
Hebrews 2:9: but we do see Jesus crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death was made a little less than the angels, so that by the grace of God He might taste of death for all. — Jay Green’s Literal Translation.
What the trinitarian has to imagine, assume and add to this verse is that it is really saying that Jesus while he was a little lower than the angels, was at the same time the Most High, above the angels and all creation. They do this by imagining and assuming their “hypostatic union” doctrine and imagining and assuming their “incarnation” doctrine, and then adding those imagined assumption to the scripture and reading those imagined assumptions into the scripture.
Jesus is not described in Hebrews 2:9, or anywhere else in the Bible, as an incarnation; like the added-on trinitarian dogma itself, the added-on incarnation doctrine has to be imagined, assumed, added to, and read into Hebrews 2:9, as well as any other scripture that might be presented to alleged support the added-on doctrine, and then by use of the added-on assumptions of the incarnation doctrine, the added-on assumption of the alleged “hypostatic union” are also imagined, assumed and added to the scritpure, so as to make the scripture harmonize with the added-0n trinitarian dogma.
