Philippians 1:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

13 For now the elite Roman guards and government officials[a] overseeing my imprisonment have plainly recognized that I am here because of my love for the Anointed One. 14 And what I’m going through has actually caused many believers[b] to become even more courageous in the Lord and to be bold and passionate to preach the Word of God, all because of my chains.

  1. Philippians 1:13 Or “Caesar’s court.”
  2. Philippians 1:14 Or “brothers.”
  3. Philippians 1:15 Or “with goodwill.” The translation has borrowed the term “love” from v. 16 and made it explicit here as the purest motive for preaching the gospel.
