And we stayed there several days”.

While in Philippi the first convert was Lydia who “whose heart the Lord opened” (Acts 16:14) Later on

Paul and Silas are thrown into jail after being beaten publicly where we see God miraculously opens

the door to the jail and the result is the Philippians Jailer and his household are converted. The jailer

then asked, “What must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30). To which Paul replies, “Believe on the Lord

Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved and thy house” (Acts 16:31). This lead's us to another time that

Paul is incarnated In Rome where he wrote the letter to the Philippians in order to thank then for their

gifts that they sent while he was in prison.

The start of Philippians 1 tie's into Philippians 2 with the use of the word “Therefore if you have any

encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in

the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion”. Paul urges the Philippians “to live as ‘citizens’ worthy of

the gospel by standing firm in one Spirit against the opposition” (Fee,175). This theme is connected to

Chapter two while Paul is writing to the Philippians where he introduces the mystery of Christ's

Kenosis. In Christian theology, kenosis (from the Greek word for emptines κένωσις, kénōsis) is the

'self-emptying' of one's own will and becoming entirely receptive to God's divine will. It is used both as

an explanation of the Incarnation, and an indication of the nature of God's activity and will.

The self-emptying,which can be related to the reality of the incarnation found in John 1:14 “The Word

became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only

Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth”. Many defend the more traditional view that

Jesus exercised both his divine and human attributes at the same time. For example, this view maintains

the Jesus could be omniscient as God and non-omniscient as human at the same time.(Boyd, Eddy,113)

Jesus Christ the Son of God became a man where he assumed his humanity and human nature, while

remaining God at the same time. It is important to think of Christ in his humanity as God the Son and

not just another man.

We find in Philippians 2:7 “rather, he made himself nothing, by taking the very nature[b] of a

servant, being made in human likeness”. Christ emptied himself basically means he took on human

flesh and with that he also took on all the limitations we have while still ceasing to be God. The

Incarnation means, according to verse 14, that the divine logos substituted his heavenly way of

existence for the frail, broken, earthly, human way of existence. This human existence of the Word is

not to be understood in a docetic way, a mere being “in the flesh,” but as a “becoming flesh,” and yet

without sacrificing his essential being as Logos....
