Written to thank Christians at
Written to thank Christians at Philippi for their generous gift to him, Paul gives hearty utterance in the letter to the Gospel of Christ Jesus: his thanksgiving to God for the Philippians’ partnership in his ministry (1:5), his being torn between going on and living in the body or departing to be with Christ (1:21–24), his joy amid the imprisonment (throughout), the Christ hymn (2:5-11) and the nature of their gift itself and its implications for their life together (4:14–19). The course covers all these themes and then some, while relating them to practical considerations in the parish and ministry.
