Readings for Palm Sunday: Philippians 2.5-11

This Sunday’s New Testament Epistle lesson comes from Philippians 2:5-11 (NRSV):

5 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, 

6 who, though he was in the form of God, 

did not regard equality with God 

as something to be exploited, 

7 but emptied himself, 

taking the form of a slave, 

being born in human likeness. 

And being found in human form, 

8 he humbled himself 

and became obedient to the point of death— 

even death on a cross. 

9 Therefore God also highly exalted him 

and gave him the name 

that is above every name, 

10 so that at the name of Jesus 

every knee should bend, 

in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 

11 and every tongue should confess 

that Jesus Christ is Lord, 

to the glory of God the Father.
