Jesus is relevant today and always because he lived as we did and He suffered for us because He loved us. Hebrews 2:9 says, But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. Jesus is God and yet He allowed himself to be placed on earth, lower than the angels, so He could take our place in death for our eternal salvation.
