“Philippians 2:7-8 The concept of self-emptying, known in Christian history by the Greek name kenosis, is common to many of the world's religions.”
“The concept of kenosis is usually applied to the incarnation of Christ.”
“In some theistic monism thought the principal of kenosis is in play where God is self-limiting with respect to life.”
“If we take care to see this, if we are canny enough to attend to it and faithful enough to lean into it, then the particular ache of that waking can initiate a response that the Greeks were wont to call kenosis -- an emptying.”
“Chapter 11 is the last in part 3, and applies the notion of kenosis to creation.”
“This is combined with the notion of kenosis from the Christian tradition, i.e. the idea that God emptied himself in the incarnation, taking a humble human form with all the implied limitations.”
“Thus, the idea of kenosis which in the minds of all men is intimately linked with the notion of sacrifice, and which we have given above as our third condition, is wanting in the theory of Suarez.”
“All the major religious traditions have the concept of "kenosis" (self limitation) relating to God's presence in the world.”
“And so, after focusing on the amazing mystery of Christ's humiliation or self-emptying ( "kenosis" in Greek), this hymn goes on joyously to celebrate Christ's exaltation after death.”
“The hymn found in his Letter to the Philippians (Phil 2: 6-11) contrasts Christ's pre-existence "in the form of God" and his subsequent "kenosis" or self-emptying, "even to death, death on a Cross".”
