kenosis

This is a continuation of my series of posts on new words that I learn from my reading.

kenosis

noun: the doctrine that Christ relinquished His divine attributes so as to experience human suffering

usage (in concept): “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:5-8

I read it in this book: Insurrection by Peter Rollins
