Wesley's Notes for Philippians 2:9

People's Bible Notes for Philippians 2:9


Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him. His wonderful humility had been shown, but it is the law of the universe that he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Therefore God lifted him up from the grave to the heavens, gave all power into his hands (Mt 28:18), and gave him a name which is above every name. The idea is an authority, a position, above that of all intelligences. This exaltation made the humble name, Jesus, a name above every name.
