Jesus makes propitiation by being the better us.
Jesus helps the offspring of faith by being tempted and suffering through it to victory so that he could become victory for us.
Hebrews 2:16-18
For surely it is not angels that he helps,
οὐ γὰρ δήπου ἀγγέλων ἐπιλαμβάνεται,
but he m helps the offspring of Abraham.
ἀλλὰ σπέρματος Ἀβραὰμ ἐπιλαμβάνεται.
alla is coordinating not subordinating.
Therefore he had n to be made like his brothers in every respect,
ὅθεν ὤφειλεν κατὰ πάντα τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς ὁμοιωθῆναι,
o so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest p in the service of God,
ἵνα ἐλεήμων γένηται καὶ πιστὸς ἀρχιερεὺς τὰ πρὸς τὸν θεόν,
to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
εἰς τὸ ἱλάσκεσθαι τὰς ἁμαρτίας τοῦ λαοῦ·
For because he himself has suffered q when tempted,
ἐν ᾧ γὰρ πέπονθεν αὐτὸς πειρασθείς,
he is able to help those who are being tempted.
δύναται τοῖς πειραζομένοις βοηθῆσαι.
hover over dunatai and do a search. It is a POWERFUL word. Point in case is in John 6 when we are told "No one is able" to take us from Jesus' hand.
Emphatic Conjunction maybe? Check p673 & 761 in Wallace.
check out Accusative of respect for Panta. 203-204. Wallace suggests it is a possible fit.
see intense perfect on p574-576 in Wallace.
ὅθεν is relative adverb for a dependent clause. Check out p762 in Wallace. D. Local (sphere).
ἵνα belongs to ac/purpose
This is a tough one. Could be Ground, Ac/Res; Ac/Pur; Id/Ex. But the beauty here is that the Ac/Purposes that came before get flipped and are shown as reality.
