This Week’s Capital Commentary
The Apostle Paul can come across as a social conservative, based on a number of passages where he urges everyone to be subject to the governing authorities or counsels staying within the calling that God has assigned. Yet he also makes many radical statements about change and leaving the past behind and entering a new community. So what does Paul intend for us to understand from these seemingly contradictory statements?
Using key passages from Paul’s letter to the Philippians, William Edgar explores how Paul’s use of political language shows us that our citizenship in the heavenly commonwealth compels us to act accordingly within the civic commonwealth. In this, Paul advocates transformative social action, and he builds his case on the character of hope that our citizenship in heaven provides.
