The self-emptying of Christ (kenosis) in Philippians 2 has long been the focus of attention by Christian theologians and interpreters of Pauls Christology. David E. Fredrickson sheds dramatic new light on familiar texts by discussing the centuries-old language of love and longing in Greek and Roman epistolary literature, showing that a physics of desire was related to notions of power and dominance. Pauls kenotic Christology challenged not only received notions of the power of the gods but of the very nature of love itself as a component of human society.
