Philippians contains one of the oldest Christian hymns. It speaks of how Jesus, though exalted, was humbled to the cross. But because he was, God exalted him above every name. Philippians, along with its ancient hymn, encourages the church in Philippi to follow Jesus’ example. They must humble themselves toward each other and in the face of persecution because they know they will be exalted with Christ.
