Philippi was a city of some importance, and had the
position and privileges of a Roman colony. It was
situated in a fruitful district, was near to gold mines,
and was also near enough to the sea to serve as a depot
for a good deal of Asiatic commerce.

COMMETARY O PHILIPPIAS CHAPTERS 1 AD 2BY ROBERT RAIY, D.D.PREFATORY OTE.OT much need be said by way of preface, inaddition to what is suggested in the intro-ductory chapter.It may be observed, however, that the Apostle'steaching repeatedly touches on the question, Howthe problem of practical human life on this earth is tobe conceived and dealt with under the light and theinfluences of Christianity? The thought occurredthat some expository passages might be supersededby an appendix summing up in one view the principlesconceived to underlie the Apostle's way of dealingwith such topics, which could be referred to on eachseparate occasion : and such a statement was prepared.It was, however, finally judged more suitable to thenature of an exposition to keep as close as possibleto the Apostle's turn of thought in each of the casesin which he approaches the subject, rather than totry to secure brevity by a more summary treatment.A few sentences have been transferred from alecture on the Apostle Paul, published some yearsago.COTETS.CHAPTER I.ITRODUCTORY: THE SALUTATIO . * • . $CHAPTER II.

ITRODUCTORY. THE SALUTATIO." Paul and Timothy, servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints inChrist Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord JesusChrist. "—Phil. i. I, 2 (R.V.).CHAPTER I.ITRODUCTORY. THE SALUTATIO.THE sixteenth chapter of the Acts of the Apostlescontains the account of the Apostle Paul's firstintercourse with the Philippians, and of the "beginningof the gospel " there. The date may be fixed asA.D. 51. After the council at Jerusalem (Acts xv.),and after the dissension between Paul and Barnabas(ver. 39), the Apostle of the Gentiles, accompanied bySilas, took his journey through Syria and Cilicia." Confirming the Churches," he went over a gooddeal of ground which he had traversed before. AtLystra he assumed Timothy as an additional com-panion and assistant; and he passed on, guided in avery special manner by the Holy Spirit, until he arrivedat Troas. Here a Divine warning, in a dream, deter-mined him to break ground in a new field. The littlecompany, to which Luke was now added, passed on toMacedonia, and, having landed at eapolis, where theydo not seem to have made any stay or found anyopportunity of preaching, they came to Philippi.
