The writer of Hebrews states in 2:9, "That Jesus by the grace of God should taste death for every man." Looking at different translations we find where the emphasis is being placed. New Century Version reads, "By God's grace He died for everyone." The Message Bible reads, "By God's grace, He fully experienced death in every person's place." The Common English Bible reads, "He suffered death so that He could taste death for everyone through God's grace."
