Galatians, the archetypical Pauline letter, unfortunately has too often been used to characterize Paul as angrily anti-Jewish or at the very least, antinomian and to condemn Jewish believers who want to preserve their Jewish identity or keep the Torah.
This commentary, written unapologetically from the point of view that the New Testament writings are Jewish texts, gives a new interpretation of this important New Testament book that should be read by everyone who wants to understand Galatians in its original context. It contains a critical assessment of Paul as a Jew who was governed by Jewish principles and methods. Clearly and engagingly written, the authors capitalize on methodological gains such as rhetorical criticism and recent finds like 4QMMT.
