“Works of the Law” in Galatians 3:10

paulpostBrian LePort over at near emmaus has asked for some bibliographic material on Galatians 3:10 and the “works of the law.” With the realisation that I may be using a firehouse to put out a marshmallow roast I have put together a “few” resources that I think he needs to have a look at when addressing this issue. Happy reading Brian!
