Philippians

(fi-Iip'i-anz—first i as in charity, second and third as in is, a as in account). The Philippians to whom Paul addressed his letter belonged to the Christian community at Philippi, which had been named for Philip of Macedon, its conqueror, in the fourth century b.c. It lay within the Roman province of Macedonia and was the first city in Europe to receive the Christian gospel. The Philippians were often praised by Paul for their friendliness and their generosity. He wrote to them during a period of imprisonment (see Phil. 1:16) probably at Rome.
