The premise of this article is that the persuasive force of any text can only be determined when all three phases of the rhetorical process have been accounted for inventio, dispositio and elocutio. Part of the inventio phase is the discovery of the so-called external and internal proofs. Aristotle distinguished three modes of internal proof, namely ethos, logos and pathos, while Kennedy regards the ways in which these three modes are employed as the main concern of rhetorical criticism. Although all three phases of the rhetorical process are considered in this article, the focus will be on the modes of internal proof used in Gl 6:7-10, thereby determining their persuasive force within the letter as a whole.
