Jesus Our Lord and the Model for Us

Act_17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Jesus Our Lord and the Model for Us

In-depth Review of Philippians 2:1-11


This document is reprinted from a paper I wrote
for a class at Ashland Theological Seminary.


In the letter to the Philippians, Paul describes
how Jesus as God nevertheless humbled himself
and became human and was obedient, even to
death of the cross for our sake. God exalted Jesus
so that everyone will acknowledge Jesus as Lord.
Furthermore, Jesus is the model for the Christian
life of humility and service to God and people.
