The Philippians felt a very Deep interest for the Apostle.
The scope of the epistle is to confirm them in the Faith, to
encourage them to walk as becomes the Gospel of Christ, to
caution them against judaizing teachers, and to express
gratitude for their Christian bounty. This epistle is the only
one, among those written By St. Paul, in which No censures are
implied or expressed. Full commendation and confidence are in
every part, and the Philippians are addressed with a Peculiar
Affection, which every serious reader will perceive.
