This letter is from Paul and Timothy, slaves of Christ Jesus. I am writing to all of God’s holy people in Philippi who belong to Christ Jesus, including the church leaders and deacons. May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.Phil 1:1-2
We have finished the heavy, time consuming background and overview work. Now we begin to focus on what Paul actually wrote in his letter. I am going to approach this in a different way now that I have a website that is user friendly. This Gem may be the shortest on record given the fact that I can provide you quickly with all the links you need. You can easily find them for yourself by using the tag and search functions by typing “standard Greek Letter”. It helps us to compare each letter against the standard Greek letter.
