This study presents an aspect which the author believes to be central to the whole of Paul’s thought on the role of Christ as Redeemer: the function assigned to Christ’s resurrection in Pauline soteriology. The purpose of this inquiry is not merely to determine the place held by Christ’s resurrection in the maturer expression of Paul’s theology, but also to observe how the progressively deeper understanding of this central Christian truth enabled Paul to arrive at the definitive expression of his conception of Christian salvation. Consequently, it will be necessary to investigate the resurrection of Christ as a formative factor in Paul’s development as it is found reflected in the authentically Pauline epistles preserved in the New Testament canon.
