Transient Apostle

This chapter discusses the theme of judgment, which influences Paul to target the attitude and behavior of the Corinthians. It reviews a language Paul used that might reflect his initial and basic message, and looks at Paul's discussion on the connection between death and apostleship in light of Christ's death. This discussion leads to the removal of consolatory motifs. The chapter ends with the issue that the pacing of the imagery that serves as a unique characteristic of the letter provides the rhetorical function of causing many cultural discourses; these define Paul as an apostle in relation to these discourses.

Keywords:   judgment, Corinthians, language, death, apostleship, consolatory motifs, imagery, rhetorical function, cultural discourses
