9780310327240 Over the next 5 weeks we'll explore some key questions and themes surrounding Paul's letter to the Church of Philippi. Our guide for the journey is Lynn Cohick, professor of New Testament and author of the Philippians commentary in the ground-breaking Story of God Bible Commentary series.

Cohick begins our exploration with an important question:

"What Would We Miss if We Didn't Have Philippians?"

How would you answer this question? Leave your answer in the comments.

One of the things she says we'd miss is the famed Hymn of Christ.

Why is it so important? Cohick explains:

The hymn serves both to tell us who Jesus is and why it matters for us in terms of holy living and our life in the age to come.

Dive into the authorial context of the hymn, plus its meaning and significance — listen to Cohick in our video above. Then add this important contribution to your library and enjoy a free eBook based on its content, called Eager Expectations.
