31 Days of Feasting on Theology: Kenosis

31 Days 2017 Large

Gentle Reader,

Kenosis: Christ’s “self-emptying.” The external exchange by which He laid aside the “form of God” and took on the “form of man.” During the Incarnation, Jesus chose to operate within some of the limitations of humanity (i.e., He was not omnipresent).
