Book Information

In this volume, respected New Testament scholar Peter Oakes offers a translation and reading of Galatians as presenting a gospel of unity in diversity in Christ. He shows that Paul treats the Galatians' possible abandonment of his gospel as putting at stake their fidelity to Christ. As with other volumes in the Paideia series, this volume is conversant with contemporary scholarship, draws on ancient backgrounds, and attends to the theological nature of the text. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight offered in this practical commentary.

This is a small to medium sized commentary. Oakes mixes the New Perspective on Paul and a traditional reading of the letter. He argues that Judeans has to trust Christ for justification as opposed to trusting the Law for justification. He views faith in 2:16 as trust "in" Christ (objective genetive), other than most in the New Perspective. On the other hand, he argues that Judean believers continues full Law observance and circumcision and sees 3:10-14 as only pertaining to gentiles. These views seem to stand in some tension with one another. Other than the above, Oakes provides theological (and devotional) reflection after each section of commentary and advances a cruciform reading of Christian ethics.
