“Jesus as Lordly Example”
With the kind permission of Wilfrid Laurier University Press, I have put a PDF of my essay, “Jesus as Lordly Example”, on the “Essays, etc.” page of this site. In this essay (published in 1984), I sought to correct the then-popular view that Philippians 2:6-11 had no intended role in ethical exhortation, but instead should be read in isolation from its context.
It’s been cited a lot in commentaries on Philippians since its appearance. But it’s sometimes hard to get your hands on (I’m told), because it was published in Canada and by a university press. It’s an oldy, but (so numerous other scholars have told me), a goody.
