Product Description

In his letter to the Philippians, Paul expresses many of his ideas about how Christians should live life together. His words on fellowship and upright conduct are carried over into his letters to the Thessalonians, in which Paul exhorts the church to live in a way that pleases God. Kingdom living is the shape of life in Christ. These letters have taught Christians since the first century to live a life shaped by confidence in what God has promised us, but also to live that life without trying to escape from this world.

In the New Testament Everyday Bible Study Series, widely respected biblical scholar Scot McKnight combines interpretive insights with pastoral wisdom for all the books of the New Testament. Each volume provides:

  • Original Meaning. Brief, precise expositions of the biblical text and offers a clear focus for the central message of each passage.
  • Fresh Interpretation. Brings the passage alive with fresh images and what it means to follow King Jesus.
  • Practical Application. Biblical connections and questions for reflection and application for each passage.

Ideal for personal reflection or group study, Philippians and 1 and 2 Thessalonians will help you see God in the biblical context so you can hear from God in your context. Philippians and the Thessalonians address believers in the first century and in the twenty-first century with words that are practical and deeply spiritual:

  • Philippians appeals for unity and rejoicing in the face of suffering.
  • 1 and 2 Thessalonians emphasize having a heart of thanksgiving and discuss the return of Christ.

 

Kingdom living is the shape of life in Christ. These letters have taught Christians since the first century to live a life shaped by confidence in what God has promised us, but also to live that life without trying to escape from this world.

Exploring the links between the time these words were written and our own times, Scot McKnight uncovers the enduring relevance and importance of these three letters for our lives today. He’ll walk you and your group through the books with Scripture passages (sometimes translated from the original by McKnight himself), reflection questions, pastoral insights, and ideas for putting God’s words into action.
