Hebrews 2:9

9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little 1inferior to the angels because of the suffering of adeath, bcrowned with 2cglory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of 3deverything.

91 In eternity Christ was the Creator, unlimited and omnipresent, but when He became a man in time, He was limited so that one day He could go to the cross to deal with the universal problem — death. In order to suffer death and thus destroy and nullify death, Christ had to become a man and lose His freedom temporarily, for thirty-three and a half years. In that sense, He was inferior to the angels during that period. However, three days after His death He resurrected out of that inferiority and is now much superior to all the angels.
