The Epistle to the Philippians

0 Reviews
A number of important recent studies of the social and religious context of first century Philippi are considered here, offering critical engagement with several of the newer approaches to Pauline interpretation, including questions of rhetoric and social convention. Highlights include  Christian joy in all circumstances, the Philippians active stake-holding partnership in the Gospel, and above all the passion for union with Christ in following his example of service.

Giving due attention to both St Paul's Jewish background and to the Graeco-Roman social and religious setting of his readership, this commentary relates a well-grounded understanding of the letter's first century impact to the wider concerns of Christian theology.
