Philippians 2:5-11 is often assumed to be about the incarnation of the Son, but does that stand up to scrutiny when you look at it in detail? We consider five reasons to doubt that interpretation.
In this episode, instead of a high level overview, we delve deep into one complex and much debated passage in Philippians 2 which says that Jesus was "in the form of God". We navigate through various translations, interpretations, and biblical contexts to uncover the essence of this pivotal scripture.
You may wonder what happens to you when you die, but have you asked yourself what you were before you were born? If you have some belief in life that continues uninterrupted beyond death, such as an immaterial soul, then you may read something similar into passages such as Jeremiah 1:5. Does that mean that Jeremiah existed somewhere in some immaterial state? Does that mean that everyone is alive in some pre-existent way before they are born? Is this what the Bible is teaching?
