Philippians provides pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and lay people a clear and compelling exposition of the text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story—God’s Story. The authors move away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, instead encouraging discussion of how Philippians and the Bible can be lived today.

Top Highlights

“The character of believers together in Christ. While Paul encourages each believer to reconsider their own stories through the lens of Jesus’ story, he stresses just as strongly that an individual believer’s story is inextricably tied with other believers who make up the local church.” (Page 2)

“His language there speaks to manipulating and maneuvering from selfish ambition. It seems their rivalry is about influence—​specifically, wanting to gain influence over those who have previously sought Paul for understanding about the gospel.” (Page 46)

“A third characteristic of leadership is embracing an attitude of humility.” (Page 29)

“Thus working out one’s salvation is another way of saying, ‘Live in the Spirit’ (8:12–14). But only in Philippians is the object of this verb ‘salvation.’” (Page 134)

“Rome is thus the more likely city from which Paul wrote Philippians, connecting the writing of this letter with the imprisonment noted in Acts 28:14–31.” (Page 6)
