An investigation of Paul's theology of the law in Galatians, in the light of recent hermeneutical developments. Part I analyses the structure of the letter, the theological perspective of Paul, and the argument and identity of the opponents. On the basis of these three preliminary considerations, Part II treats Paul's view of the law in Galatians. The thrust of the author's argument is that the term nomos refers to the Mosaic law imposed upon Israel at Mount Sinai, and that this law functions on three distinctive levels: as the obligation of the Sinai covenant, as an enslaving power and as an expression of love.
