Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4

Book Overview - Philippians

The Church at Philippi in Macedonia was planted by the Apostle Paul about ad 53 (Acts 20:6). The Philippians were greatly attached to St. Paul, and testified their affection by sending him supplies, even when labouring for other churches (Phlippians 4:15, Phlippians 4:16; 2 Corinthians 11:9); and when they heard that he was under confinement at Rome, they sent Epaphroditus, one of their pastors, to him with a present, lest he should want necessaries during his imprisonment (Phlippians 2:25; Phlippians 4:10, Phlippians 4:14-18). The more immediate occasion of the Epistle was the return of Epaphroditus, by whom the apostle sent it as a grateful acknowledgment of their kindness; which occurred towards the close of his first imprisonment, about the end of ad 62, or the commencement of 63.
