If you were guessing things based on how they should sound, you probably got blindsided by that fourth option.  There were people actually preaching Paul’s message about Jesus Christ in order to add to his crimes.  He was arrested because he was telling folks about Jesus, so by certain others doing the same, they hoped his punishment would be worse.  Paul didn’t care, however, because this just meant more people were hearing the Gospel.  Of course, there were others who were spreading the message for the genuine, goodhearted reasons, so that’s a plus.

    Back to Philippians describing Jesus as a servant, what Old Testament passage specifically talks about the Messiah being the Suffering Servant?

-Psalm 23-

-Isaiah 52-53-

-Genesis 20-

-Malachi 1-
