The present work is an exegetical and theological discussion of Pauline ethics in the light of the New Covenant theme characteristic of the self-understanding of the Pauline communities. The discussion deals with the distinctive features of Christian morality and the basic problems of Paul's ethical thought: the implications of life in the Spirit, the why and the what of Christian obligation, the indicative-imperative relationship, the nature of Christian love, the relationship between love and law in Christian morality, and the function of paraklesis and precept in Christian living. This study may serve as an introduction to Pauline ethics and theology. T. J.
