Why the Law Then? (Intro)
I have recently completed an essay investigating Paul’s teaching in Galatians on the Christian’s relation to the Mosaic Law entitled: Why the Law Then?: A Biblical Theology of Law in Galatians. I am excited to share it with all of you and get feedback. It is the first true writing I’ve done on my understanding of the relation of the Mosaic Law to the Christian. Hopefully, it will help to clarify my position to those who are curious to who I understand this issue.
Since the article is 3,800 words without footnotes (5,350 with) I will break it into four parts to make it a little more approachable. I hope that it is approachable for the lay reader and intriguing for the scholar. I will start tomorrow with the first part and every-other-day post the next installment. If you just can’t wait for the next installment then you can download the entire essay in PDF. It should be noted that I have dedicated this writing to someone.
concern and desire for doctrinal precision, godliness, and
God’s glory amongst the nations is both challenging and inspiring.
