Abstract These last years, the debate around the Pauline authenticity of the Pastoral Epistles has shifted. The opposition between Catholics and Protestants no longer exists, and some authors strongly doubt the pseudepigraphical characterization of those Epistles. The theological inner tension of the Pastorals shows up in the dynamic between a parenetical discourse and a soteriological statement. If we still speak about pseudepigraphy, it should be understood as a "fictional auto-reference" by Paul, last authorized interpretation of the previous pauline texts. The image of Paul is, in this way, at the junction of parenesis and theology. On the one hand, he is the author of the exhortations, and on the other hand, he is the place where salvation becomes visible. His teaching and hist spiritual experience become archetypes for communities getting farther and farther away from the primitive form of Christianity.
