My co-host, Lynn Cohick, is the author of the Philippians volume in The Story of God Bible Commentary series, which I have been using in my sermon prep for Moody Church. In this episode of Theology for Life, we talk about Philippians 2, particularly the hymn found in verse 6 and onward.

Lynn talks about what it means that Jesus was in the “form of God” and “emptied Himself by taking the form of a servant.” Was He omniscient? In what ways was He limited in attributes while on earth?

How would the Philippians have understood this, and how are we to understand this today?

And, what is kenosis?
