Paul's Servant-Lord Analogy For The Relationship Of A Believer To Christ:This book analyzes Paul's use of the servant-lord analogy to convey the notion that every Christian is called to be a servant of God. Concerned with those aspects of the believer's relationship to Christ that are embodied in the servant-lord analogy, author William Sprague provides a critical interpretation of 1 Corinthians 7:22b. He demonstrates that Paul's meaning of the servant-lord analogy is not only grounded in his view of God, the law and Christ, but also contemporary culture. Setting the relevant context for understanding the meaning of servant or slave, Sprague investigates the practice of slavery in the Greco-Roman culture of the First Century. He also examines Paul's view of himself as a servant of God as well as his previous relationship to the law and his new life in Christ. According to Paul, to lay claim to the title of Christian is to become a servant or slave of Christ with the attendant responsibilities of obedience and service. Sprague argues that renewing this commitment to service as Paul intended is critical for rejuvenating the modern Church. Thoughtful and compelling, this book will be an important resource for Biblical students, religious scholars, and ministers.
