Philippians 3:4–7 (NIV): 4 though I myself have reasons for such confidence.
If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; 6 as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless.
7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.
Paul worked hard converting regions to Christianity, but it never failed that as soon as he left a new church, Judaizers would follow behind him. Their whole goal? To convince the new followers of Christ that just believing in Christ wasn’t enough to receive eternal life.
Paul confronts all of that in today’s 2-minute podcast.
Listen now and discover more about who Paul was and why he had more reason to boast than any Jew of his day.
