Jesus - Historical Revisionist or Lord of the Narrative?

In Philippians, chapter 2, Paul weaves together a crucial piece of the eternal meta-narrative with threads of the divine and human.

"...though he was in the form of God...and being found in human form..." (Philippians 2:6-8).

Christ stepped into the narrative of man, and re-wrote it according to logos, for to Him it was but self-expression.

Since Him, everything has changed. He lived a significance of vast, eternal dimension. In fact in Him, all becomes "meta-dimensional" and explodes into mystery - at some inevitable point.

Amazingly (but understandably) He measured everything according to Himself. Everything was determined, measured from "the cornerstone", (Matthew 12:10, cf Ephesians 2:20).

He was the baseline of meaning.

All things have a logos-relative depth of meaning. Question is, do we perceive it?

If so, that's what constitutes our vision. If not, we're still just dealing with "stuff" - His stuff. And it can be dangerous to detach theory from reality, so there is need for caution. Because it is chained to and has one foot in transcendence, mere spiritual knowledge "puffs up."

Vision causes the heavens to explode. Not to mention our Bibles.
