Chapter Summary

Pauline uses the phrase to be reconciled to someone in 1Cor 7:11, admonishing the estranged wife not to remarry or to be reconciled to her husband. This particular use of the verb, to denote the change from enmity to friendship in an interpersonal relationship, is common in Greek and lexicographically well documented. He describes his mediating task to the Corinthians in terms of the actions of an ambassador. Paul depicts the change in relationship between God and the Corinthians in the terminology of reconciliation. Through Christs death the former hostile we were reconciled to God. In Rom 5:1 Paul describes the current state of the justified believer as having peace with God. The inseparable crucifixion and resurrection of the living Son thus form the basis of the current friendship and the future salvation.
