Though he was transformed by Christ, Paul retained his identity within the Jewish community. Nanos challenges traditional views of the apostle as rejecting his heritage and the Law, reclaiming him in a Jewish context. He explores the issues of purity; insiders/outsiders; the character of "the gospel"; and more in this innovative interpretation of Galatians. 288 pages, softcover from Fortress.
Employing both traditional historical-critical methods and social-scientific criticism, Nanos explores the issues of purity; insiders/outsiders; the character of "the gospel"; the relationship between groups of Christ-followers in Jerusalem, Antioch, and Galatia; and evil-eye accusations.
