Paul??'s letter to the Galatians begins with a proclamation of
deliverance from the present evil age and comes to a climax with
the ringing cry ???new creation ??? The letter moves from the
Galatian believers??? new identity in Christ to the implications of
that identity for their life together.
Susan Eastman here argues that Galatians 4: 12???5: 1 plays a
key role in this movement: it displays the power of God??'s act in
Christ, apart from the law, not only to generate the Galatians???
new life in Christ but also to perfect it. Paul communicates to his
converts the motivation and power necessary to move them from their
ambivalence about his gospel to a faith that ???stands fast??? in
its allegiance to Christ alone. Eastman argues that the medium and
the message are inseparable. Paul??'s discourse or ???mother
tongue??? ? packed with maternal images, vulnerable yet
authoritative, and marked by personal suffering ? demonstrates the
content of the good news.
