Philippians is one of the four prison epistles written by Paul perhaps around A.D. 64. This church in Philippi was faithful and generous. They supported Paul in prayer, and financially, and he commends them for it (4:14-16). Paul assures them that because of their faithfulness, God will supply their need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Unlike the church in Corinth, this church is healthy, and Paul does not need to correct any error. Philippi is a normal Christian New Testament assembly.
“For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
