Any references to his theology that might come in by the way would, it might be argued with some soundness, be all the more valuable as being unpremeditated, quite natural and unforced, and, accordingly, completely sincere and reliable. As a matter of fact; there are a number of references to Jesus Christ and what Paul thought of Him, among them one of the fullest statements Paul ever made on the subject, Phil. 2:5-11, a passage introduced quite unexpectedly, but at the same time with a certain unmistakable solemnity. These passages are sufficient in number and scope to present all the important truths treated in dogmatics under the heading of The Person of Christ. The letter to the Philippians, like the rest, presents Jesus Christ as truly divine and truly human, and. yet truly one in his person, a person who passed through the deepest -valley of humiliation for man's redemption, before God exalted him to the highest pinnacle of heavenly glory and excellence.
