More About Philippi

There is great material about the church at Philippi on pages 20, 21, and 22 of 33 total pages in the following study guide:

The Prison Epistles of the Apostle Paul, by Gene Taylor.

What stands out to me most, after reviewing Taylor’s study, is Acts 16:6-12.

The church at Philippi was established as a direct result of Paul’s inability to travel elsewhere. This city was not on his original itinerary. In verses 6 and 7, Luke, the author of Acts, attributes these struggles to the “Holy Spirit” and the “Spirit of Jesus.”

One lesson I learn is that when I face insurmountable struggles and need to change my life’s itinerary, it may be because God is calling me to serve elsewhere.

Review of Philippians

I still feel like I don’t have a good handle on who the Philippians were.

I’d like to learn more because Paul speaks so highly of their church.
