Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 48

Question 48

How did Christ humble himself in his life?

Christ humbled himself in his life, by subjecting himself to the law, (Gal. 4:4) which he perfectly fulfilled; (Matt. 5:17, Rom. 5:19) and by conflicting with the indignities of the world, (Ps. 22:6, Heb. 12:2–3) temptations of Satan, (Matt. 4:1–12, Luke 4:13) and infirmities in his flesh, whether common to the nature of man, or particularly accompanying that his low condition. (Heb. 2:17–18, Heb. 4:15, Isa. 52:13–14)
