People's Bible Notes for Philippians 1:13


Php 1:13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace. "Throughout the whole Praetorian guard" in the Revised Version. The praetorian camp was the great military camp of a body of soldiers stationed permanently at Rome, called the praetorian guards. Paul, as a military prisoner, was under charge of its commander, the praefect. The necessity of reporting regularly would make him well known, and would give him many opportunities to preach Christ there and elsewhere. Compare Ac 28:16.

    The verse where it says that to live is serving following loving Christ
  • Mark R
    I believe the Apostle Paul is telling his readers to never retire in the faith. Always preach the Gospel in some sort of way that reflects the love of Jesus Christ. We as Christians should never put down our tools of faith that God has given to us. We should remain focus on the call that God has ordained us to have. The easy chair and house coat Christian need not apply in this letter!
