Abstract [en]

Galatians 6:6 is commonly interpreted as instructing pupils to provide material support to their teachers, in return for the teaching received. It does not seem, however, that this is what the immediate context is about. To motivate this interpretation, one thus needs to show either that the words or expressions in 6:6 themselves, on grammatical, semantical or idiomatic grounds, give this meaning (that the verse can stand by itself), or else that it is probable from a cultural context that the words would be meant (and understood) in this way. This essay examines whether such arguments are viable and reaches a negative result. Thus the expression needs to be read in a way that is informed by the context, rather than diverging from it.

Abstract [sv]

Galaterbrevet 6:6 tolkas vanligtvis som att det handlar om att eleven ska bistå sin lärare materiellt, alltså understödja denne ekonomiskt, som motprestation för den undervisning eleven får. Samtidigt framställs uttrycket ofta som förbryllande – det kommer innehållsmässigt abrupt, avsnittet i övrigt handlar inte om detta.

Varför tolkas då ändå uttrycket på detta sätt? För att motivera att det bryter sammanhanget i texten kan man tänka sig a) att detta markeras syntaktiskt, b) att uttryckets subjekt avviker från resten av avsnittet, c) att uttrycket i sig är entydigt, d v s ingen annan tolkning är möjlig eller rimlig,  eller d) att det finns bakgrundsfaktorer – kulturella, teologiska etc - som ger betydelsen. Denna uppsats visar på att inga av dessa argument är hållbara, utan det rimligaste är att förstå texten utifrån det närmaste sammanhanget.
