Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to investigate the pivotal semantic position taken by ἁɣáπɳ in its relationship to the Pauline concept of church. ἁɣáπɳ is a kóπos a strenuous labour (1 Thess. 1:3), not to be considered a means or strategy to achieve something but to characterise the typical depicted eschatological character of the Pauline έΚΚλɳσία. Selected aspects of ἁɣáπɳ in 1 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Romans, Galatians and Ephesians are investigated to illustrate the remarkable relationship between έΚΚλɳσία and ἁɣáπɳ.
