(1 Tim. 3:8,10,12‑13)
 With the exception of the Second Epistle to Timothy which is of another nature, there is none that contains like {Philippians}, the expression of the Christian’s experience in this toilsome life, and the resources which are open to him in passing through it, and the motives which ought to govern him. (PHILIPPIANS by J.N. Darby)
 {Philippians} takes the ground of the precious inner life, of the common affection of Christians towards each other, but of that affection as experienced in the heart of Paul, animated and directed by the Holy Spirit. (Philippians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 In the Philippians, we are always on the way towards our heavenly rest in which redemption has set us. (Philippians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 First, it speaks of the Christian’s pilgrimage in the wilderness; salvation is viewed as a result to be obtained at the end of the journey….In the second place, the position is characterized by the Apostle’s absence, the assembly having therefore itself to maintain the conflict....And, third, the important truth, already mentioned, is set forth, that the assembly, in these circumstances, was cast more immediately on God-the inexhaustible source for it of grace and strength, of which it was to avail itself in an immediate way by faith-a resource which could never fail it. (Philippians 1 by J.N. Darby)
 In the Epistle to the Philippians we have little or no formal unfolding of doctrine, but a beautiful presentation of true Christian experience. Believers are viewed, not as seated together in heavenly places in Christ, as in Ephesians, but as journeying through the world, forgetting the things that are behind, and pressing on to Christ Jesus in the glory. It gives us the experience of one who takes this journey in the power supplied by the Spirit of Jesus Christ (Phil. 1:19). It is not, be it noted, necessarily the experience of Christians that is passed before us, for this, alas! we know may fall far short of true Christian experience. (Philippians 1 by H. Smith)
 The epistle was called forth by the fellowship these Philippian saints had with the apostle {Phi. 4:15-16}, manifested at that time by the gift they had sent to help in meeting his necessities. (Philippians 1 by H. Smith)
 In the first chapter it is Christ our Life, leading the believer to view everything in connection with Him (1:21). (Philippians 4 by H. Smith)
 As a whole, the epistle shows proper Christian experience, that is, superiority, as walking in the Spirit, to everything through which we have to pass. (Philippians 4 by J.N. Darby)

bishops: King James’ translators left in ’bishops’, instead of adopting `overseers’ as in Acts 20:28. The cases are exactly parallel; as indeed a similar constitution prevailed wherever the apostles visited and supplied full order. The modern ’minister’ of dissent is as unknown as the traditional ’diocesan’. (Exp. of Acts, p. 308)
