DOCUMENT INFO
Description: The Carmen Christi in verses 6-8 has turned the Roman cursus honorum ideology "on its head," so that Christ's descent from equality with God to slave status and death amounts to a cursus pudorum ("a succession or race of ignominies" [2]). It is a surprise to find that the central concerns of these verses are not soteriological (contra Ksemann?) but ecclesiological (one would have expected "ethical"), that is, "to encourage an alternative way of living together for the members of the Christian community at Philippi" (156).
