I purpose, therefore, to write on the Christology of Paul's captivity letters. My general plan of procedure shall be to tabulate in categorical fashion the sum of the christological doctrines taught by Paul in these same letters, with appended remarks for the purpose of clarification. Uppermost in my mind shall be the expounding of the truth as it is so powerfully adduced in these inspired epistles. I shall determine to defeat and expose the heretical doctrines after careful collation of the source material, The scope of my treatment shall begin with the pre-existent Christ in heaven, take special notice of him as God manifest in the flesh, and end with the glorified Christ, who 1ives and reigns through all eternity.

A minor object of my thesis shell take into account whether or not Paul deviated from his doctrine on Christ in these his captivity letters from his former epistles.
