but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. – Hebrews 1:2-3 (ESV)
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. – Romans 11:36 (ESV)
he had no form or majesty that we should look at him … and no beauty that we should desire him. – Isaiah 53:2 (ESV)
The real humiliation of the incarnation is that one who was himself God, and who never during the whole process stopped being God, could embrace such a vocation (as a slave).
