Supreme Humility, Supreme Exaltation
And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name
What did it mean for Jesus to humble himself? We must simply admit that this is beyond us.
The Lord of Glory Entered Creation
Of course it was humbling for the Lord of glory, who created all things,1 to become part of the creation. He became “for a little while lower than the angels”2and lived 30 years unrecognized by anyone except very few. We know that “not even his brothers believed in him.”3
