Abstract Evidently an important theme in the Pauline letters, discussions of the nature, scope and function of power have given rise to a wide range of explanations and interpretative positions. Engaging the rich diversity regarding the content and nature of power in Paul, this contribution argues that the Roman imperial context is indicative and instrumental for understanding the construction and regulation of power in the Pauline letters. Coming to terms with the significance of imperial ideology in the understanding of power in Paul requires appropriate interpretive strategies such as a postcolonial interpretation.
