Notes
Paul now gets to a specific concern of the letter: the relational conflict between Euodia and Syntyche. Here Paul is not primarily entreating them to "agree" on some issue. Rather he is entreating them to have the "mind of Christ" in their dispute. If they began to think the way Paul, Timothy, and Epaphroditus do then many of their differences would be resolved and they would be able to work together.
