Part II: Philippians 2:7–8 The importance of Philippians 2:5–11 can hardly be overestimated. The text is cited in places where it does not seem to belong and is mentioned even at moments one was not anticipating any mention. So, in preparation for a class on the Pauline Epistles, I was reading the entry on “God” in the recently released second edition of the Dictionary of Paul and his Letters (2023). You don’t expect a lengthy discussion of Christology, but then again how can you say, “God our Father” and not immediately add “and the Lord Jesus Christ.” The quote that struck me is the followin ..read more

Part I: Matthew 28:19–20 Playing the role of the “fly on the wall,” I was sitting in my Synoptic Gospels class, listening to a report on discipleship. I knew that, once the Gospel according to Matthew would be up for consideration (as usual, writers will treat Mark first), sooner or later there would be a reference to “make disciples” in Mathew 28. The report was based on “Disciples and Discipleship,” an entry in the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels (second edition, 2013). And what I heard was somewhat surprising, but not totally unexpected. I looked it up more carefully after class, and fo ..read more

This is one of the petitions of the so-called High-priestly Prayer of Jesus in John 17. The prayer was spoken (made) before Jesus’s ascension and even before his passion. In church, however, it is heard on the Sunday after the Ascension and before Pentecost. What matters (and seems to be appropriate) is the fact that it is after ascension. At the right hand of the Father, Christ now intercedes for us (Heb 7:25; 9:24). What does his intercession look like? What is Jesus asking on our behalf? There may be different answers, but one answer comes from John 17. John 17 has been known as Jesus’s Hig ..read more
