Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, …crowned with glory and honor!

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little inferior to the angels because of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of everything. (Recovery Version)

When Christ was enthroned, He received glory (Hebrews 2:9). Joseph also typifies Christ in this regard, for when he was released from the dungeon, he received glory (Genesis 41:42). Joseph’s opposers not only sold him and despised him, but cast him into a dungeon. In chapter 41 the prison is called a dungeon. The living conditions in Joseph’s dungeon were far worse than the conditions of the prisons in this country today. The dungeon into which Joseph was cast was a pit. Those who put him there did so with the intention that he would be severely distressed. But God lifted him up and not only placed him on the throne but also gave him glory. You may be wondering how we can prove that Joseph received glory. The proof is in the fact that he was clothed with beautiful garments and made to ride in the second chariot of Pharaoh. His being clothed with fine linen was in contrast with his being stripped by his brothers of his coat of many colors. When people saw him clothed with such beautiful garments and sitting in Pharaoh’s chariot, they must have realized that here was a man in glory. (Life-Study of Genesis, ch. 113, by Witness Lee)
