Abstract The original article argued that 1 Cor 8: 6 originated as a liturgical acclamation, which acknowledged all the soteriological blessings received in baptism. The unity of the motion from the first cause through the instrumental cause to the final cause demanded an ‘either-or’ approach. Thus a ‘both-and’ approach which recognized a cosmological reference to the first creation was refused. The Postscript acknowledges that this was a mistake, but insists that what is said of God cannot be separated from what is said of Christ. The acclamation in fact takes up the intimate association between creation and redemption found in Deutero-Isaiah. The finality of creation is redemption. Nothing is said about the pre-existence or divinity of Christ.
