Philippians Study: Introduction 1

Studying PhilippiansI’m going to start a study through Philippians in my Sunday school this week. I thought I’d do several blog posts to meditate through the things I’m learning.

I’m using The New International Greek Testament Commentary by O’Brien. I also have Boice’s Philippians: An Exegetical Commentary along with MacArthur’s New Testament Commentary on Philippians. Calvin’s commentary on Philippians is online so I’ll be using it as well. I hope to also use The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge edited by Jerome H. Smith.

I’ll mainly be using the English Standard and New American Standard Bibles. As I’m trying to continue my studies in Greek I will also include my Greek New Testament and A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (BDAG) as much as the school library will let me see it when I’m off of work.
