Abstract

The three problems investigated in this study are: Is there a coherent argument in Galatians 6,1-6? Does v.4 admit rightful boasting? To what extent is v. 5 eschatological? The coherence is confirmed by the global consideration of both context and text, as well as by the exegesis of the individual verses (against H. D. Betz and J. C. O'Neill). Between v. 1 and v. 2 there is no qualitative shift from sinful actions to radical sinfulness; in w. 3-4 Paul opposes wrong boasting to a possible rightful boasting that, however, does not allow comparison with others (against G. Klein). One's "own load" in v. 5 points to everyday worries (against D. W. Kuck). The unifying factor in this text is the interweaving of the two complementary injunctions, mutual help and individual attentiveness, which dominate Paul's exegesis in 6,1-6.
