What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
Note 7 at Php 1:18: If Christ was being talked about to people who had never heard of Him before, Paul found reason to rejoice. Paul didn't care about himself. He was single in his focus of the advancement of the kingdom. People couldn't believe on Jesus if they hadn't heard of Him and what He had accomplished (Ro 10:17). So, regardless of the motive, Paul rejoiced that the details of Christ's death and resurrection were being proclaimed.
