PREFACE

The interpretation of Philippians 2:5-11, which forms the first part of the present little volume, was originally published as two articles in The Expositor for September and October 1896.

Several friends, upon whose judgment I Could most fully rely, desired to see the substance of the articles re-published, with additions, in a more permanent and convenient form. This I have now been able to accomplish through the kindness of Messrs. Hodder and Stoughton, the publishers of The Expositor.

to establish the true interpretation of St. Paul ‘s language, without attempting to discuss the various dogmatic theories which profess to be deduced from it, except in so far as they are based upon representations of the Apostle ‘s meaning, which I can only regard as mistaken and misleading.

On the other hand, there is cause to fear lest humanitarian views of our Saviour ‘s life on earth, if regarded too exclusively and pressed too far, may tend, in minds less learned and less devout, to obscure that glory of the Incarnate Word, which was beheld by the Apostles, “ a glory as of the only-begotten of the Father. ”
