Theological Term of the Week: Self-Limitation of Christ

theological-term-of-the-week

This week’s term: Self-Limitation of Christ – The doctrine that Jesus Christ, being very God, all the while He was man, was not stripped of, or denied the infinitude of deity, but by perfect divine power and wisdom voluntarily  limited Himself, so as to bear all the burdens of man, in whose stead He came to stand.

Last week’s term: Incarnation of Christ – The truth that in becoming Jesus of Nazareth, God the Son partook of flesh and blood, in such a way that He suffered in every way in which the flesh is capable of suffering.
