HISTORY OF INTERPRETATION PHILIPPIANS 2:9-112History of InterpretationPhilippians 2:9-11Philippians 2:9-11 says, “Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”. Although Jesus was born to the virgin Mary and Joseph, he wasGod’s son. God brought him to the earth to save the people. Jesus lived a sin free life and ultimately died on the cross to save us. Because of this selfless act, God named him Lord. Philippians 2:9-11 is the passage that I have chosen for my interpretation paper while referring to Origen of Alexandria, Gregory of Nyssa, and Bonnie Thurston. All three have similar views to the passages and what it means. Origen of Alexandria is considered one of the most influential and controversial theologians. Many of his ideas were questioned by various theologians which lead to a formal condemnation by the Ecumenical Council which met three centuries after his death. Origen wasassociated with Universalism, the theory that every person will eventually be saved[ CITATION Tho17 \l 1033 ].
