- Romans 16:20 Romans 16:24 ; 2 Corinthians 13:14 The Church at Philippi in Macedonia was planted by the ApostlePaul about A
- D. 53, ; ( Acts 16:9-40 ;)and it appears he visited themagain, A
- D. 60, though no particulars are recorded concerning that visit, (Ac 20:6.) The Philippians were greatly attached toSt. Paul, and testified their affection by sending him supplies,even when labouring for other churches, (ch. 4:15, 16; 2 Co11:9;) and when they heard that he was under confinement atRome, they sent Epaphroditus, one of their pastors, to him witha present, lest he should want necessaries during hisimprisonment, (ch
- 2:25 ; 4:10 14-18.) The more immediate occasion of the Epistle was the return of Epaphroditus, by whomthe apostle sent it as a grateful acknowledgment of theirkindness; which occurred towards the close of his firstimprisonment, about the end of A
- D. 62, or the commencement of 63.
