1 1 Philippians Class Schedule

2 2 Philippians 2: But I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger and minister to my need; 26 because he was longing for you all and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick. 27 For indeed he was sick to the point of death, but God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, so that I would not have sorrow upon sorrow. 28 Therefore I have sent him all the more eagerly so that when you see him again you may rejoice and I may be less concerned about you. 29 Receive him then in the Lord with all joy, and hold men like him in high regard; 30 because he came close to death for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was deficient in your service to me.

3 3 Christ 7a but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, Paul 17 But even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, Timothy 22b that he served with me in the furtherance of the gospel like a child serving his father.

4 4 Philippians 2: But I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger and (your) minister to my need; 26 because he (Epaphroditus) was longing for you all and was distressed because you had heard that he (Epaphroditus) was sick. 27 For indeed he (Epaphroditus) was sick to the point of death, but God had mercy on him (Epaphroditus), and not on him only but also on me, so that I would not have sorrow upon sorrow. 28 Therefore I have sent him (Epaphroditus) all the more eagerly so that when you see him again you may rejoice and I may be less concerned about you. 29 Receive him (Epaphroditus) then in the Lord with all joy, and hold men like him in high regard; 30 because he (Epaphroditus) came close to death for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was deficient in your service to me.

Therefore I have sent him all the more eagerly more eagerly - spoudaiōs - signifies with haste or with zeal, earnestly see 2 Tim 1:17 so that – two point purpose when you see him again you may rejoice I may be less concerned (sorrowful) about you
