Abstract | Full Text

The present article contains the exegetical analysis of the text from the letter of St. Paul to the Galatians: “Bear one another’s burdens” (Gal 6:2). In four points there are discussed the general issues of the translation, criticism, as well as the literary and exegetical analysis of the text. The paraneasis of Galatians 6:2 appears in the context of freedom and love which are the fruit of the Spirit and which the true Christian should follow in one’s behaviour. St. Paul’s statement from Galatians 6:2 is an incentive directed to all to bear one another’s burdens and, together with the sinner, to lean over his sin and to help him to overcome it, so that his conversion may take place. The term ‘burden’ indicates a weight in a moral sense. Burdens, therefore, are the sins in which every man falls. Reciprocal help is a protection from the moral downfall and a concern for one’s neighbour’s salvation. It is a definition of an interpersonal solidarity as well as the imitation of Christ and the fulfilment of Christ’s law whose essence is the love of the neighbour.
