Verse of the Day (July 13, 2020) #BMSeminary – These verses reveal God’s response to Jesus’ sacrifice of verses 6–8. The Father hath highly exalted him to a place of honor, and made His name above, that is, “more excellent than” every name. The name that is above all others is “Jesus.” There are three purposes for Jesus’ exaltation: (1) That every being in the universe might someday submit to Him. (2) That, in addition to the future universal submission (v. 10), there might also someday be a universal confession that Jesus Christ is Lord. On earth Jesus is recognized by many to be no more than man (v. 8), yet in the future all will acknowledge Him to be Lord, that is, God. The ultimate purpose for Jesus’ glorification is (3) to the glory of God the Father (v. 11), for His honor. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
