What is Paul trying to tell the reader in Philippians 2 when he identifies Jesus as being 'in the form of God?' Continuing the Exegetical Insights tradition, this episode endeavors to unpack the meaning of this section from the passage itself.

Should We Worship Jesus?
by Sean Finnegan [59:27]
rated at 3 (out of 1 vote)
Sean Finnegan begins by affirming, along with 1 Timothy 2.5, that the Father is the only God before delving into the question of worshiping Jesus. He covers the basic vocabulary of worship, various acts of worship, standard objections to worshiping Jesus, and limitations on that worship. In the end he concludes that Jesus should be worshiped because God has ordained it to be so, but this is not idolatry because God receives glory when Jesus is worshiped.
