In episode 48, I examined a common evangelical interpretation of this text and found it lacking.
In this episode, I compare scripture with scripture, to try to come up with a plausible, understandable, well-motivated interpretation.
Can the authors of Genesis, Isaiah, Hebrews, and Revelation, along with other texts by Paul, help us to understand what Paul is and is not asserting in the second chapter of his letter to the Philippians? Here I argue for the affirmative. Are you convinced by my case?
