High above on the throne was a form that appeared to be a man. — Ezek 1:26 NET
Christ Jesus, himself human.—By looking like other men, and by sharing in human nature.—Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, he likewise shared in their humanity, so that through death he could destroy the one who holds the power of death (that is, the devil).
“The one who lives! I was dead, but look, now I am alive – forever and ever.”—We know that since Christ has been raised from the dead, he is never going to die again; death no longer has mastery over him. For the death he died, he died to sin once for all, but the life he lives, he lives to God.—“Then what if you see the Son of Man ascending where he was before?”—He raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.—For in him all the fullness of deity lives in bodily form.
For indeed he was crucified by reason of weakness, but he lives because of God’s power. For we also are weak in him, but we will live together with him, because of God’s power toward you.

For your promise revives me. — Ps 119:50 NET
So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living person”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
“For just as the Father has life in himself, thus he has granted the Son to have life in himself.”—“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live even if he dies, and the one who lives and believes in me will never die.”
In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind. … But to all who have received him – those who believe in his name – he has given the right to become God’s children – children not born by human parents or by human desire or a husband’s decision, but by God.
“The Spirit is the one who gives life; human nature is of no help! The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.”—For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing even to the point of dividing soul from spirit, and joints from marrow; it is able to judge the desires and thoughts of the heart.
