Christ in Glory, St. John’s College chapel, Cambridge, a photo by TheRevSteve on Flickr.
From the New Testament reading at morning prayer:
We do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honour because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
(Letter to the Hebrews, chapter 2, verse 9, NRSV)
If Jesus tasted death for everyone, does that mean everyone will be saved from death?
Or is the real question, do we want everyone to be saved from death?
I’m sure most of us could make a list…
