About This Episode

The Greek terms for “joy” and “rejoice” appear in St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians more than you’ll find in any of his other epistles. On this episode, Scott Hahn unpacks the “Epistle of Joy.” He’ll recount how Jesus’ humble sacrifice and unity with the Father brought about salvation—and eternal joy—to mankind.
