Paul’s letter to the Philippians may aptly be seen as a meditation on joy. But Paul’s joy, rather than the result of ease and comfort, is a contentedness made pure through suffering. He has “learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Ralph Martin shows how these themes flow from and emulate Christ’s humility, lead to spiritual fellowship among believers, and contribute to spreading the gospel. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world’s most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.

Ralph P. Martin is Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California; at Haggard Graduate School of Theology, Azusa Pacific University, California; and at Logos Evangelical Seminary, El Monte, California. His writing includes the Dictionary of the Later New Testament and Its Developments and several volumes in the acclaimed Word Biblical Commentary (WBC) Series.
