John 1:14 (YLT):
14 And the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth.
Philippians 2:5-8 (YLT):
5 For, let this mind be in you that [is] also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, being in the form of God, thought [it] not robbery to be equal to God,
7 but did empty himself, the form of a servant having taken, in the likeness of men having been made,
8 and in fashion having been found as a man, he humbled himself, having become obedient unto death -- death even of a cross,
I find some notable parallels between these two accounts:
- Both appear to be talking about Jesus ("only begotten of a father", "Christ Jesus")
- Both appear to be describing a transition from a prior state to a next state ("the Word became flesh", from "form of God" to "form of a servant" / "found as a man")
- Both mention the fact that this person lived among humans ("did tabernacle among us", "found as a man")
Are John 1:14 and Philippians 2:5-8 describing the same event?
