Course Description

Study Paul's short but powerful letter to the early Christian community in Philippi. Though Philippians is often called a letter of joy or a letter of friendship, it is much more than either of these. Learn about the city of Philippi and Paul's ministry there according to Acts and Philippians, the Philippian hymn and its central role in the letter, and how the letter can help us think about theology (especially Christology), spirituality, community, unity, and mission. If you are looking for an interactive, thoughtful exploration of this letter’s ancient context and contemporary significance, this course is for you.
