    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    100% God

    In Blue Letter Bible eleven English translations?

    made himself of no reputation
    3
    instead he gave up his divine privileges
    1
    made himself nothing-----0?
    2
    emptied himself
    4
    did empty himself
    1

    Total 11

    If the Word was not 100% man and 100% God before the incarnation then these eleven translations must have something to do with him being 100% God and 100% man.

    In reality this, ἀλλ᾽ ἑαυτὸν ἐκένωσεν, did not even have to be in the text for the above to happen.

    He died. Or at least part of him died.

    The real questions.

    What took place with these words? ἀλλ᾽ ἑαυτὸν ἐκένωσεν
    What was he resurrected as relative to above?
    By scripture was his resurrection spoken of as something relational by God the Father?
