In this incisive commentary, Nancy Bedford explores Paul's Letter to the Galatians as it addresses pressing issues in the earliest Christian churches. Paul argues that it is not necessary for Gentiles to become full-fledged Jews in order to follow Jesus. In Jesus Christ, differences among people will continue. Bedford sees that equality in Christ (Galatians 3:28) does not erase differences but instead breaks down hierarchical relationships among many different people and groups. She considers the implications of these convictions for Christian faith today, particularly for those outside of Western Christian traditions. Bedford's unique theological-interpretive approach to Galatians is suitable for preaching and teaching preparation and is a welcome addition to the Belief series.
Nancy Bedford is Georgia Harkness Professor of Applied Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. She is a member of and part of the preaching team at Reba Place Church in Evanston, Illinois, and was formerly Profesora Extraordinaria No-Residente at the Instituto Unversitario ISEDET in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
