The apostle Paul speaks of Jesus and his high exaltation (Phil 2:9), and we imagine Jesus in his glorified body at the Father's right hand. Yet in his Gospel, the apostle John declares, "We beheld his glory," and connects the glory of Jesus—the same same glorious manifestation we see in the OT—with his humiliating death on a Roman cross. The ironic glorification of Jesus is anticipated in the first half of John, The Book of Signs (Chs. 1-12) and is brought to reality in the second half of John, The Book of Exaltation (Chs. 13-20).
