With its user-friendly design, this commentary by Moisis Silva provides a substantive yet accessible discussion of Philippians to help pastors, students, and teachers understand and explain this letter. Each passage is presented in three parts: Silva'sown translation of the Greek text; exegesis and exposition of each unit of thought; and additional notes on textual matters. Throughout the commentary, Silva asks what is distinctive about this letter and shows how each passage contributes to Paul'soverall argument. The second edition has been updated to interact with important recent scholarship on Philippians and to incorporate the well-regarded Baker Exegetical Commentaty on the New Testament layout.

Customer Reviews for Philippians, Second Edition: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament [BECNT]
Review 1 for Philippians, Second Edition: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament [BECNT]
This is a reissue of the 1988 Wycliffe Exegetical Commentary, and has been completely revised. Silva has written an excellent commentary on this epistle and can be ranked alongside Fee and Lightfoot. The exegesis is what one would expect from a good academic commentary, and the flow of the language is simple and easy to follow. Silva has discussed the text of 2:5 and 6 in details, and it is here where he exceeds Fee in his exegesis; but it cannot be compared to the detailed study done by Lightfoot on the word morphe in his commentary. I highly recommend this commentary to all alike for it will be useful to the scholar, student and pastor.
