Exaltation of Jesus as Divine Affirmation

“It is the affirmation, by God the Father, that the incarnation and death of Jesus really was the revelation of the divine love in action. In giving to Jesus the title kurios, and in granting him a share in that glory which, according to Isaiah, no one other than Israel’s God is allowed to share, God the Father is as it were endorsing that interpretation of divine equality which, according to v. 6, the Son adopted. Christ’s exaltation and divine honor are the public recognition that what was accomplished in his obedience and death was the outworking of the very character of God, the revelation of divine love.”

-N.T. Wright, on the exaltation of Christ in Philippians 2.
