  1. Read Philippians 3:1-16.
  2. Why is Paul writing to the Philippians and what is the main theme of the letter?

  4. What is the relationship between Paul’s command that the Philippians rejoice and his warning to look out for the “dogs” and “evil workers”?
  5. How does Paul differentiate between the Philippians and the “evil workers”? Why did he think it was important to do?
  6. How does Paul drive home the point that it is futile to boast in the flesh?
  7. What was it that changed Paul’s mind about who he was and how did this change of mind reorient his life?
  8. Why did Paul want to be found by God with a righteousness that was not his own?
  9. How does being justified through faith and being untied to Christ give us joy that endures even in the midst of trials and pain?
