Tonight I preached on Philippians 2:5 – 11 and we looked at Jesus. We looked at his death and resurrection, how we can know it happened, if he was really God and man while here on earth and what will happen when he comes back. I realize that those are all huge topics, but Paul decided to put all of that into 6 short verses.
Below you will find some articles, books and sermons that will help you in diving deeper into this topic. I hope that if you have questions or know someone who has questions on these topics that you will take advantage of the great resources available.
