Chapter Summary

Fueling Walter Bauer's analysis in Lexicon is the notion that the various senses of δόξα-δοξάζω relate to a "core" meaning of "light". This chapter examines the occurrences of δόξα-δοξάζω in Paul. In the Pauline corpus, the verb is used some fifteen times. The occurrences can be broken down into several syntactic profiles which correlate with a specific denotation. The noun can be organized into several ranges of meaning. Some forty-two occurrences of the noun δόξα can be subdivided into three registers: occurrences which syntactically relate to God; occurrences which syntactically relate to Christ; occurrences which syntactically relate to humans. These occurrences can be divided into two profiles. The first profile brings Glory into syntactic connection with certain activities performed by God. The second profile involves human activity. Twice the Glory of God, or God as the source of Glory, is brought into syntactic relationship with Jesus Christ.

Keywords: Glory of God; Jesus Christ's Glory; Lexicon; noun constructions; Paul; syntactic profiles; Walter Bauer
