Summer Update

I have been on holiday and must confess this blog took a back seat to certain other activities such as driving 4300km across Western Canada (pun intended). On my return I noticed that things have not been quiet in the field of Galatians so without further adieu here is a list of new resources and old resources released in new formats.

Bernard O Ukwuegbu, “Paraenesis, Identity-defining Norms or Both? Galatians 5:13-6:10 in the Light of Social Identity Theory.” Catholic Biblical Quarterly. 70:3 (2008): 528-559.

There was another article in that issue concerning the genitive argument which does relate to Galatians. I won’t give away his conclusion but I will whet your appetite with his concluding sentence: “I have suggested just one interpretive scenario in which one might use 2 Cor 4:13 as a Rosetta stone against which to read Gal 2:16.”

Kenneth Schenck, “2 Corinthians and the Πιστις Χριστου Debate.” Catholic Biblical Quarterly. 70:3 (2008): 524-537.

For those who are interested in allegory and are multilingual this might be interesting:

Juan Antonio Gil-Tamayo, “‘Todo esto tiene un sentido alegórico’ (Ga 4,24): la exégesis antioquena de Gálatas 4,21-31.” Scripta Theologica. 40:1 (2008): 35-63.

In other news, Logos Bible Software has been busy releasing new digital works including:

The Yale Anchor Bible which contains: J. Louis Martyn, Galatians: A New Translation With Introduction and Commentary. Anchor Bible. Toronto: Doubleday, 1997.

A Baker New Testament Collection which contains Moisés Silva, Interpreting Galatians: Explorations in Exegetical Method. 2nd ed. Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 2001.

They have also announced the coming of the Cornerstone Biblical Commentary set which includes the volume on Romans and Galatians. This volume is also included in the NLT Study Bible set (1414326211, 978-1414326214) which seems a much better deal if you don’t want the entire set.

I would like to add some resources by other Bible software programs but infortunately not much else is happening in that field. Logos has undoutedly run away with the game when it comes to producing digital books for biblical studies.
