Emphasizing the historical distance between the New Testament and contemporary culture, Philippians—part of the new, highly-anticipated Fidei Commentary series on the New Testament—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. The authors move away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, instead encouraging discussion of how the Bible’s story can be lived today. Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, the Fidei series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s Story, with each New Testament text examined as embedded in its canonical and historical setting, in order to foster discernment in living the story faithfully and creatively with and for the Church in the 21st Century

One can hardly ignore the significance of suffering in Paul’s letters. Respected scholars (e.g., Scott Hafemann, Christiaan Beker, and Ann Jervis) have demonstrated the indispensable role of suffering in Paul’s teaching. Despite that, the topic does not often “hit the headlines” in Pauline studies. Meanwhile, Christians around the world testify to the encouragement and comfort Paul gives them in times of pain and distress. The purpose of this book is to arouse interest in Pauline scholarship on the topic and provide a resource for educators, theological students, and thoughtful pastors. New Testament scholars in five countries across three continents contribute to this volume. They study the texts, intertexts, and the language of suffering in Paul. They explore the notion of participation in Christ’s suffering and glory, and examine the significance of identity formation and solidarity in the Christ community. In addition, the authors reflect on the implications for the church today from different social locations and cultural backgrounds. The result is an exegetical and critical reflection that invites the church to seriously engage with Paul on the topic. Contributors: Sunny Chen, Roy Ciampa, Timothy Gombis, Sanyu Iralu, Haley Goranson Jacob, Kar Yong Lim, David Starling, Sean Winter, Siu Fung Wu, and Xiaxia Xue.

It seems unlikely that a chained prisoner would write a paper on triumph, but in his letter to the Philippian believers, the apostle Paul did exactly that. John F. Walvoord's refreshing analysis of this popular New Testament epistle combines an unusually fascinating style with a careful exegesis of the original Greek text. After discussing the epistle's authorship, date, character, and relevance to modern Christianity, Walvoord moves to a consideration of prominent phrases in the Pauline writings. Additionally, cross-references and historical background help to explain the text to the layman or student. Learn how the principles expressed by the apostle Paul can help Christians today to consistently experience peace in Christ.

Philippians: The Easy Study Bible Commentary Completely Revised and Greatly Enhanced! Not for scholars but for anyone who struggles to understand the New Testament! The Easy Study Bible Commentary takes The Easy Study Bible Diagramed and examines, describes and expounds upon each New Testament book, chapter by chapter, paragraph by paragraph, verse by verse and finally phrase by phrase. In my many years of Bible study, I have found this arrangement to be the easiest to follow and understand. I have done my best to write this commentary with the idea in mind of making it easier for you to understand and therefore apply the great teachings that God gave to each of us through the various books of the New Testament. At the end of each section that we study, I will give you what I call my Greek Paraphrase. What I do is to take all of the expanded Greek definitions and put them together to help us better understand the passage. The following example is from Philippians 1:1-2: Chapter One This opening chapter is much more than a greeting. After Paul does that, he gets into thanksgiving, prayer, advancement of the good news, and living is Christ. Verses 1-2 Greeting 1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: 2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Verse: 1 1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: 1 Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons: Phrase by phrase: 1 Paul and Timothy, Paul – Paul or Paulus = “small or little” – Paul was the most famous of the apostles and wrote a good part of the NT, the 14 Pauline epistles (letters); Paulus was a deputy or pro-consul of Cyprus and is said to be a prudent man, in the management of affairs, as a governor (different man) Timothy – “honoring God” – a resident of Lystra whose father was a Greek and mother a Jewess; he was Paul’s travelling companion and fellow laborer slaves of Christ Jesus, slaves – a slave, bondman, man of servile condition; devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interests; a servant, attendant Christ – the anointed One, the Messiah Jesus – Jehovah is salvation To all the saints all – lineage running back to some progenitor, ancestry; a nation or tribe; family, in a wider sense, nation, people saints – holy; things: consecrated; persons: unapproachable, perfect, pure, upright, worthy of God, saint in Christ Jesus Christ – the anointed One, the Messiah Jesus – Jehovah is salvation who are in Philippi, Philippi – lover of horses” – a city of Macedonia located on or near the northern coast of the Aegean Sea, between the rivers Strymon and Nestus, and the cities Neapolis and Amphipolis including the overseers and deacons: including – with, together with, besides overseers – an overseer; a man charged with the duty of seeing that things to be done by others are done rightly, any curator, guardian or superintendent; the superintendent, elder, or overseer of a Christian church deacons – one who executes the commands of another, especially of a master, a servant, attendant, minister; the servant of a king; a deacon, one who, by virtue of the office assigned to him by the church, cares for the poor and has charge of and distributes the money collected for their use; a waiter, one who serves food and drink There is a subtle difference in how Paul starts this letter. In most of his other letters he makes mention of the fact that he is an apostle of Jesus Christ. Paul includes Timothy in much the same way a spouse would be included in a letter written by only one of the couple. Timothy had nothing to do with the writing of this letter. He just happened to be with Paul at the time. The word “slaves” is often translated as “servants” but this is not the true meaning of the word. It means “slave” as in someone who has no freedom of movement, must obey his master, and cannot change his circumstances. Paul used this word to show that they have given themselves over to the will and service of Christ. Paul often called believers saints. He was not describing their personalities or characters. He was merely showing their association with Christ. Overseers and deacons were the ones chosen to serve the church. Overseers or bishops were the ones who led the church to adhere to the principles of Christ that Paul had given them. Deacons were those who were to serve the members of the church in their times of need. Did Paul single them out for a reason? I think that he wanted them to know that, as in all the early churches, he expected them to see that the instructions in this letter would be heard by all and that it be applied to all the members of the church in Philippi. Verse: 2 2 Grace to you and peace from God, our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Grace to you and peace from God, our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. Phrase by phrase: 2 Grace Grace – grace; that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness: grace of speech; good will, loving-kindness, favor; benefit, bounty to you and peace peace – a state of national tranquility; exemption from the rage and havoc of war; peace between individuals, harmony, concord from God, our Father, God – God the Father Father – male ancestor; could be any one from immediate father to distant ancestor and the Lord Jesus Christ. Lord – he to whom a person or thing belongs, about which he has power of deciding; master, lord Jesus – Jehovah is salvation Christ – the anointed One, the Messiah “Grace” and “peace” – As he did in other letters, Paul combined the Greek and Jewish greetings. Grace expresses God’s love to mankind and peace expresses the condition that results from God’s love. Greek Paraphrase of Verses: 1-2 From Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi along with their elders and ministers, who are in union with Jesus the Messiah. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

The New Testament in Antiquity is a textbook for college and seminary students penned by three evangelical scholars with over fifty years of combined experience in the classroom. Their challenge was to build a text that would be engaging, academically robust, richly illustrated, and relevant to the modern student. This book strikes a balance between being accessible to all students and challenging them to explore the depths of the New Testament within its cultural worlds. The New Testament in Antiquity carefully develops how Jewish and Hellenistic cultures formed the essential environment in which the New Testament authors wrote their books and letters. It argues that knowing the land, history, and culture of this world brings remarkable new insights into how we read the New Testament itself. Numerous sidebars provide windows into the Jewish, Hellenistic, and Roman worlds and integrate this material directly with the interpretation of the literature of the New Testament. This is an ideal introductory text for classroom use, with ample discussion questions and bibliographies.
