Humiliation of Christ

 

Humiliation of Christ - (Phil. 2:8), seen in
(1) his birth (Gal. 4:4; Luke 2:7; John 1:46; Heb. 2:9),
(2) his circumstances,
(3) his reputation (Isa. 53; Matt. 26:59, 67; Ps. 22:6; Matt. 26:68),
(4) his soul (Ps. 22:1; Matt. 4:1-11; Luke 22:44; Heb. 2:17, 18; 4:15),
(5) his death (Luke 23; John 19; Mark 15:24, 25),
(6) and his burial (Isa. 53:9; Matt. 27:57, 58, 60).

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