Jesus was truly and literally a servant just like He was truly and literally a man just like He is truly and literally God.

It doesn’t say he took on the “form, outward appearance, shape” (BDAG) of a “servant”. It says he took on the ”form, outward appearance, shape” of a “slave”. That’s rather different. Don’t you have a dictionary?
