Passage: Philippians 3:1-11
1. Noticed that Paul in this passage pointed out that those who put confidence in the flesh (Judaizers) falsely placed their security in the Law and the practices of external obedience. In comparison, what did Paul caution the Philippians? Through his own example (vv. 8-11), where is Paul encouraging the Philippians to switch their confidence to?
2. What three things did Paul want to know (v. 10)? In the Jewish culture, knowing someone signifies a great sense of intimacy, how is knowing the three things about Jesus lead to intimacy with Christ? How does this intimacy naturally lead to the imitation described in 10b and 11?
