This unit designed for MTS and DMin students will help students better understand, preach, and apply Paul’s Letters to the Philippians and Philemon. In class, students will learn about Paul’s biography, ministry, and message, unpacking the backgrounds and main themes of these letters and exegeting the texts. Students will receive homiletical tips, look at relevance for theology, and consider the contemporary application. This unit will better equip students to preach and apply these two letters in their own ministry contexts.
