Tom Wright on Galatians

Here. This is Tom Wright. You disagree with him and… whew… I wouldn’t want to be you in December.

I think it is Paul’s second letter, by the way.

  1. Wright, as usual, shows us what contemplative scholarship of the highest caliber both looks like and produces…competence and excellence. Looking forward to the new addition.

    FWIW, I think there is a good case that Galatians is the first letter of Paul’s epistolary works. Anyways, definitely not in the middle part of his hauptbriefen.

  2. I believe Galatians was written in the summer of 50 A.D. from Antioch (Acts 15:38-39)
    1 Thessalionians was written a year later in the Autumn of 51 from Corinth (Acts 18:1)

    This was my dissertation…

    • I still see Paul, in 1 Thess, as less dogmatic. In Galatians he is challenged, and thus he has to develop his doctrine.
