Treasured Themes in Phillippians

August 9, 2021-August 12, 2021

With the writing of a commentary comes the opportunity to enter “further up and deeper in” to treasured themes in Paul’s letter to Philippians, e.g., partnership in the gospel, Christological preaching amid the imprisonment, the Christ hymn (2:5–11), apostolic use of Roman military language, intertextual themes, regarding all things as loss for the sake of Christ (3:7), the nature of the Philippians’ gift, and implications for their life together. The present course covers all these themes and then some, relating them to preaching, parish, and ministry.

Registration for this course is free of charge, as the Council Bluffs Circuit of the LCMS is graciously paying for all fees.
