In this week’s episode we are looking at Philippians, specifically, in terms of what it teaches us about Christ. We dive into the historical and cultural background of the Greco-Roman world, the colony of Philippi, and then consider the “Christological hymn” of Philippians 2:5-11.
5:00-14:14 – Background
14:15 – 39:29 – Phil. 2:5-11
