KENOSIS - Literally, "emptying." The word is associated with humility or humiliation. God the Word humbled Himself by becoming man (with no change in His divinity), suffering death on the Cross for the world and its salvation (Phil. 2:5-8).   God's self-limitation, His Divine condescension, especially in taking on human nature in Christ.
