  2. Exposition

Which world is in view?

Hebrews 2:5 (ESV)

5 For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking.

It is the inhabited world of the future, the place of salvation (see Hebrews 1:14 and Hebrews 2:3) and glory where Christ has already been brought in (Hebrews 1:6), the perfect creation where the man noted in Psalm 8 reaches his destination.1
