Was Jesus considered lower than the angels because, although still God, he was birthed by a woman and walked the earth as a human?


Hebrews 2:7

ESV - 7 You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor.

I partially agree with the first part of the answer. Hebrews 2;9 Jesus was made lower than the angels.."for a little while". John 1:1 declares what has already been stated.. God cannot die so He was made to be lower than the angels as 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, "For he made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us,  that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. Only by becoming man could he die and fulfill the requirement of a Holy and Just God. Rom:5:12, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned". Lastly read Rom 3:26
