Chapter Summary

This chapter begins by showing how a proper view of Pauls adoption metaphor provides a unique contribution to the apostles understanding of soteriology. This will be followed by a consideration of adoption as a salvific work of the divine FamilyFather, Son and Holy Spirit. The chapter looks at how Paul not only uses his adoption metaphor to describe salvation for the individual but also employs this metaphor in more novel and innovative ways to describe how Gods adopted offspring are the conduit for the deliverance and transformation of the whole cosmos (Rom 8:1825). The New Testament soteriological metaphors in general and the Pauline soteriological metaphors in particular were not created ex nihilo; rather they are planted firmly in the soil of the social context of the first-century Mediterranean world.

Keywords: cosmos; Holy Spirit; New Testament; Pauls adoption metaphor; Pauline soteriology
