J. J. Muller's The Epistles of Paul to the Philippians and to Philemon —one of the original New International Commentary volumes— is widely known and much loved for its verse-by-verse commentary, careful examination of Philippians and Philemon, and introductory examination of each book. His words, brimming with outstanding scholarship and biblical wisdom, outline the doctrine found within these two Pauline epistles in way that is useful for students, professors, pastors, and laity alike. What's more, this resource was the original New International Commentary volume on Philippians and Philemon. Bringing fresh commentary to two popular New Testament epistles, Muller's words remind us of the importance of careful examination of the Scriptures.
“a gracious promise is made: The God of peace will be with them.” (Page 144)
“Enmity against the cross may mean any anti-Christian action, any opposition to the gospel of which the preaching of the cross is the pivot and centre; or it may also be the opposition of self-sufficiency against the demands made by the gospel of the cross with regard to the taking up of the cross personally and sharing the suffering of Christ.” (Pages 129–130)
“Paul’s trust in God for the continuation of the fellowship in the gospel, is another reason for his thanksgiving and joy. That confidence is not vested in the Philippians and in their steadfastness or irreproachable past, but in God,7 Who began, and Who also brings to completion, and who never forsakes the works of His hands.” (Page 41)
“Paul can face all circumstances of life as they come, and be strong, only in the strength which Christ Himself in His great mercy grants him, and which is experienced in intimate fellowship with Christ.” (Page 147)
“Their salvation is, therefore, in the first instance, the work of God, not of themselves, and all spiritual life and demonstration of power in them is the fruit of the grace of God.” (Page 92)
