Product Description

The apostle Paul was bound by prison chains when he wrote to the church at Philippi. Despite his loss of liberty, and opposition from fellow-workers, the letter radiates joy--joy that Christ was proclaimed, joy in fellowship with the Phil- ippian Christians, and above all joy in Jesus himself. In The Message of Philippians Alec Motyer explores Paul's great themes, so relevant today: Christian unity, the Person of Jesus and what he has achieved for us, and the call to live worthy of the gospel.

Publisher's Description

If you were in jail, what sort of letter would you write to your Christian friends? Would it focus on the difficulties--the poor food, cramped quarters and lonely isolation? Paul's letter to the Philippians, written from prison, has no hint of self-pity. The letter radiates joy--joy that Christ was proclaimed, joy in fellowship with the Philippian Christians and, above all, joy in Jesus himself. In this volume of the Bible Speaks Today series, Alec Motyer identifies three major themes that filled Paul's heart and mind as he wrote: the unity of the church, the person of Jesus and what he has achieved, and the call to live a life worthy of the gospel.

    This commentary by the late J. A. Motyer in the Bible Speaks Today (BST) series is a reminder of what a commentary should be. Though he describes lots of trees, he never fails to present the forest. I even got the feeling as I read this book, and its a feeling too often missing in many commentaries, that the author here believed God wrote the book. He seemed in awe of Philippians. Christ was magnified throughout.

    In the Introduction, the author did not run straight to the theme of joy as most do. In fact, he opened with: Philippians is a joyful letter, but its undercurrent is a sober realization that time is running out. It made sense to me! He described the setbacks Paul was facing here in his second missionary journey. He further gave a good view of Philippi as Pauls first European church. He well highlighted unity, the coming day of the Lord, and the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ as the three keys to understanding the book. More than referencing other scholars, he referenced other scriptures. That probably tells you more than anything what kind of commentary this is, but I believe we all need some of this type.

    The commentary itself was outstanding. I will always pull out Motyer even if theres only time to glance at a few volumes. He may have been an Old Testament expert, but reading here you would assume the New Testament was his field.

    Theres a chance this volume may be replaced as the BST series updates volumes from time to time. Since this author has passed away, I want to encourage the publisher to slide this volume over and print it as a classic. Its a warm volume, so I give it the warmest recommendation.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
