In what was probably his last letter to the Philippians, Paul urges his readers to practice humility (Phil 2:3). Eve-Marie Becker's interpretation pays equal attention to the historical background, ethical and ecclesiastical functions of Paul's admonition.
In what was probably his last letter to the Philippians, Paul urges his readers to practice humility (Phil 2:3). Eve-Marie Becker's interpretation pays equal attention to the historical background, ethical and ecclesiastical functions of Paul's admonition. Humility's seeming ambiguity as a »European« value is discussed as well as the extent to which humility was originally an early Christian virtue initiated by the apostle to install identity.
