Summary: It is not to angels that God has subjected the world to come; It is subjected to The Man, (like all men made lower than the angels), the one crowned with glory and all things put under his feet - nothing excepted; (you might ask, 'But why then don't we see everything under His authority?') You are right, everything is not presently under willing submission. But look no further than Jesus - The road that led Him to crowning glory is the very road that led through his death, by which he serves all men so that all men may bow to Him. Questions: v.9b, What does this purpose clause point back to? It seems to me the best fit is back to, "...who for a little while was made lower than the angels... so that... he might taste death for everyone." Insights: In Psalm 8, David is expressing awe that God has stooped to consider man. In v5-8, he observes that God has: made man a little lower than heavenly beings, crowning him with honor, given man dominion over all creation The writer of Hebrews makes it clear that Jesus fulfills Psalm 8 perfectly - such that even the angels are subjected to him. I see this most strongly in the ground clause of 8b (NASB renders gar, 'For...' ). Not only is everything not subject to angels (v.5), but when God put everything under Jesus feet, nothing was excepted, not even the angels. Hebrews does not gloss the tension between Jesus' humanity and his divinity.
