The Unity Of Jesus’ Person (Philippians 2:5-11)Phillip Stuckey, September 6, 2020
Part of the A Study of Christ series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Lord Byron, the British poet, said, “If ever man was God, or God man, Jesus Christ was both.” The Scripture contains some things that are hard for us to understand (2 Pet. 3:16). One of those difficult things surrounds the person of Jesus. If He were a man, then how could He be God (Heb. 2:9)? If He were God, then how could He be tempted (Jas. 1:13)? Let’s consider how Scripture speaks to the truth that Jesus is both human and divine.

Philippians 2:5–11 (Listen)
5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
