Paul Axton Preaches - The advent of the light breaking into the world is not dependent on human decision. It is a matter of what God is doing. To focus on the mediation of law, on the mediation of history, or to picture faith as a mediation, is to miss the act of God in Christ.

In this lecture, Paul Axton fully engages contemporary critiques of Sigmund Freud but suggests that in the second phase of his work and in the broad parameters of his project there is a potential theological understanding that needs to be utilized.

Paul Axton pits the salvation historical approach of N. T. Wright or the Quest for the Historical Jesus against the apocalyptic revelation of being found "in Christ" as in Galatians. Transference out of slavery to freedom does not depend primarily on history or time but a shift in relationship.

Paul Axton Preaches - The gospel inaugurates a new world order with its own understanding and reason. The argument of Galatians is that the gospel is its own foundation and does not depend on law, rhetoric, reason, religion, or anything else, as it is the speech act of God in which the Christ event continues to unfold.

The implication is that creations purpose is fulfilled in this image bearing which embraces the role of all of creation and our own story in the created order.
