(Hebrews 2:17-18) “17 Therefore he was obligated in all things to be made like his brothers, that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 For in that he himself has suffered being tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.

Have you ever wondered about Heb. 2:18? Jesus already knows all what means that He knows all situations. Isn’t it enough to help those who are tempted? why he himself should be tempted in order to help others? This looks like a very difficult question.

I do not know the answer in details but propose this explanation:

Jesus needs to suffer and be tempted himself so that when He helps somebody, the opposition would not be able to say: He tries to help tempted persons which he himself was not tempted and did not suffered.

It is only a possible theory. I welcome you to discuss in comments to this blog post possible explanations.
