Philippians 2: 6 - 7: "Who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bondservant, and being made in the likeness of man ... He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross"(NASV).
It is common for us to see Jesus as the Master Discipler and He certainly is. Yet, Jesus demonstrates to us what a disciple is by being a disciple Himself ... a disciple of His Father, God. When we think of salvation through the finished work of Christ on the cross we need to see the place of Christ as a disciple in the plan of atonement.
