Infographic: The Humiliation and Exaltation of Christ – Westminster Catechism

An Integral part of understanding Jesus Christ and what He did in His earthly minister is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith Larger Catechism. It says:

Our Mediator was called Christ, because he was anointed with the Holy Ghost above measure; and so set apart, and fully furnished with all authority and ability, to execute the offices of prophet, priest, and king of his church, in the estate both of his humiliation and exaltation.Larger Catechism Q.42

The estate of Christ’s humiliation was that low condition, wherein he for our sakes, emptying himself of his glory, took upon him the form of a servant, in his conception and birth, life, death, and after his death, until his resurrection.Larger Catechism Q.46

The estate of Christ’s exaltation comprehendeth his resurrection, ascension, sitting at the right hand of the Father, and his coming again to judge the worldLarger Catechism Q.51
