Suffering and Apostolic Authority

There is an article in the latest issue of Svensk exegetisk årsbok regarding Paul defending his apostolic authority based on his suffering:

James A. Kelhoffer, “Suffering as Defense of Paul’s Apostolic Authority in Galatians and 2 Corinthians 11.” Svensk exegetisk årsbok. 74 (2009): 127-143.

This was previously presented in Sweden at a seminar in April: Dr. James Kelhoffer gave an invited lecture on “Suffering as Defense of Paul’s Apostolic Authority in Galatians and 2 Corinthians 11” in the Exegetiska storseminariet i Nya Testamentet (Advanced Exegetical Seminar in New Testament) at Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden on April 23, 2009.

  1. Where in Galatians does Paul refer to his suffering to defend his authority? In 6:17 Paul does not defend his authority, but rather his commitment. See Chrysostom. Paul here is saying, “let no-one question my commitment: look at my wounds”. Which parts of Galatians does Kelhoffer focus on?

    • That’s a good question Richard. I don’t have access to the article in Svensk exegetisk årsbok and I have not found an abstract of the article. Perhaps someone in Sweden could clue us in.
