Exegesis of Philippians

Instructor: Paul Zell

Description:
Of all the epistles of St. Paul, Philippians stands out as one of the most personal and joyful. The apostle wrote it as a “thank you” letter acknowledging the generous gift his brothers and sisters had sent via Epaphroditus. “Stand firm,” he urges his readers, “striving together for the faith of the Gospel.” Above all, however, Paul penned these words to magnify the name of Jesus for his providence, his humility, his gift of righteousness, and his protection in every situation.

One course objective is that each participant comes away with half a dozen thoroughly researched text studies. That too will allow us the opportunity to read the epistle in the original.
