When you hold the Bible in your hands and read the words on the page you are engaging with thousands of years of history and translation. We can sometimes forget that the Bible was written during ancient times for a context that is extremely different from our own. It’s helpful when studying the Bible to listen to the voices of scholars who are well versed in understanding the original language and context. As we study through the book of Philippians the following resources may be helpful guides to support you in your learning and understanding of the book.
