Jesus Tasted Death for All Men
Heb 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Mark 9:1 not taste death,
This seems to me to be an interesting statement, not taste death.
The word taste carries with it the thought of an experience.

Have you ever taken a bite of something that just turned your stomach inside out.
Take a drink of something that caused you to spew it back out of your mouth.
I have experienced a few other things in life that was not something you ate or drink, but it was hard to swallow.
In being a Pastor sometimes things are done or said that I know is not correct but because of confidentially I must stay quite. Sometimes things are hard to swallow.
The Word of God declares death to be a bitter experience without Christ in your life.
But the great things about that is Heb 2.9 that Jesus by the grace of God has tasted death for every person.
Most of you probably have seen the movie Passion of the Christ, and you could see that Jesus death was bitter.
God did not make it an easy experience for His Son, for His Son was dieing for the Sins of the world.
How bitter this must have been according to 2Cor 5:21 states For Jesus who know no sin became sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
1Jo 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
1Jo 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins.
