Chapter Summary

This chapter explains the theological function of autobiographical elements in Paul's Letter to the Galatians 1,13-14 and discusses the terms used in Gal 1,13-14, the structure of Gal 1,13-14 analyzed in the context of Gal 1,10 to 22, the location of Gal 1,13-14 found within the entire Epistle to the Galatians. The theological content of the description of the "biographical" moments in the pre-Christian Paul's life, includes his changes in Judaism. Considering the Gal 1,13-14 in the context of Gal 1,10 to 22 the "biographical part" is framed from two rhetorical parts: Gal 1:10 (-11) is the introduction of argumentative question and preaching Paul for revelation of the people or tribe of Christ; Gal l, (16) 17-22 describes the transformation of traveling and missionary Paul. Gal 1,12 to 15 deals with the so-called "biography" of the pre-Christian Saul and his conversion. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: biographical moments; Galatians; Judaism; pre-Christian Saul; theological function
