Humiliation of Christ

Humiliation of Christ

(Phil 2:8 ), seen in (1) his birth ( Galatians 4:4 ; Luke 2:7 ; John 1:46 ; Hebrews 2:9 ), (2) his circumstances, (3) his reputation ( Isaiah 53 ; Matthew 26:59 Matthew 26:67 ; Psalms 22:6 ; Matthew 26:68 ), (4) his soul ( Psalms 22:1 ; Matthew 4:1-11 ; Luke 22:44 ; Hebrews 2:17 Hebrews 2:18 ; 4:15 ), (5) his death ( Luke 23 ; John 19 ; Mark 15:24 Mark 15:25 ), (6) and his burial ( Isaiah 53:9 ; Matthew 27:57 Matthew 27:58 Matthew 27:60 ).

His humiliation was necessary (1) to execute the purpose of God ( Acts 2:23 Acts 2:24 ; Psalms 40:6-8 ), (2) fulfil the Old Testament types and prophecies, (3) satisfy the law in the room of the guilty ( Isaiah 53 ; Hebrews 9:12 Hebrews 9:15 ), procure for them eternal redemption, (4) and to show us an example.
