The learned suppose this epistle to have been written A. D. 55, or 57, at Ephesus,--and not at Philippi, as the postscript asserts. Corinth, though noted for Grecian learning, being very opulent, became very corrupt and profligate. St. Paul, however, founded a church there; bot various evils having crept in, both in doctrine and practice, he wrote this epistle to correct and remove them.
