BOOK EXCERPT:

This volume employs a text-centered, literary-rhetorical, and audience-oriented method to demonstrate how the implied audience of Philippians are persuaded and exhorted by the dynamic progression of the letter's chiastic structures to rejoice along with Paul and other believers in being conformed, with all of the broad implications of such conformity, to Christ. This reading assumes that Philippians is a single, unified letter written to be read and heard in a public setting as an oral performance substituting for the personal presence of the imprisoned Paul, and it proposes new chiastic structures for the entire letter as a key to understanding it.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The people in the city of Philippi who received this letter from their friend, Paul, were suffering from two of Christianity’s greatest adversaries: self-sufficiency and complacency. While writing this letter from a Roman prison cell, Paul was able to provide a unique perspective on these enemies of our faith. Even as he faced horrific trials, Paul continued to encourage his brothers and sisters by declaring that his imprisonment was reason for joy. This letter also includes Paul’s concerns for the church regarding spiritual and practical matters, such as unity and false teachers. He urges the believers to maintain their spiritual commitment and integrity as well as to continue to grow in Christ. The MacArthur Bible Studies provide intriguing examinations of the whole of Scripture. Each guide incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God with guidance from John MacArthur.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Paul's letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul's joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. Ralph Martin draws out these themes.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Apostle Paul has been beaten, abused, shipwrecked, and snake-bitten. After narrowly escaping an assassination attempt, he is falsely accused as an enemy of the empire and arrested. Under the watchful eye of a Roman guard, Paul awaits a trial with Caesar who may sentence him to death. Yet despite their best efforts, Rome's rulers cannot silence Paul. He bravely puts pen to parchment and writes to the Christians in Philippi who were facing their own set of problems. Written under such dire circumstances, we might expect a letter full of complaints or cries for help. Instead, Paul's letter to the Philippians has been inspiring Christians around the world for thousands of years. Rejoice. Press on. Shine like stars. Thank God. Again, I say, rejoice. In Philippians: A Bible + Doodle Study for Students you'll read inspired words written to encourage Christians who desperately needed God's presence and help. Through prayer, study, and doodling you'll find truths for your life today, no matter what you are facing. You will be encouraged, and your faith will be strengthened. And like Paul, the Philippians, and millions of Christians before, you will discover the secret to lasting joy.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In this commentary G. Walter Hansen offers rich exposition of the text of Philippians as well as wisdom and maturity in its application. In so doing he emphasizes partnership -- the social and corporate dimensions of community -- in the progress of the gospel. After a select bibliography, Hansen's introduction sets forth the historical setting of the church in Philippi, the nature and occasion of the letter, and a preview of two key themes -- the gospel of Christ and the community in Christ. The commentary itself discusses Philippians in light of these themes, considering Paul's greetings, reports of gospel ministry, imperatives for citizens worthy of the gospel, recommendations of two Christ-like servants, and disclosures of his personal experience. Hansen's treatment as a whole is distinctive for the way it draws out and highlights the themes of partnership, citizenship, and friendship in Paul's Philippian letter. - Publisher.
