Chapter Summary

God's redemptive action pre-supposes the creation, includes the creation, and is undertaken in face of the reality of evil, which latter cannot prevail because of Jesus' lordship through his mediation in the works of creation and redemption. Redemption pre-supposes the creation in the sense that, by creating the world through Christ, God prepared the room in which redemption was to be fulfilled. It is equally true that the creation is essential to God's redemptive purpose and that this purpose is essential to creation. The Pauline view of the way redemption, including the creation by working actively within it, is especially evident in his ethics, according to which creation Iris not in itself the final norm and it is not evil, and "for Paul is" persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself. Pauline cosmic Christology exists only in a variety of pragmatic contexts or concrete situations.
