Translating the New Testament collection

As several bloggers have noted there is a new book out focusing on translating the New Testament. Mark Boda was my undergrad Old Testament professor so I know this should be a good collection. Two articles on Galatians are included:

Alain Gignac, “A Translation that Induces a Reading Experience: Narrativity, Intratextuality, Rhetorical Performance, and Galatians 1-2.” 146-166.

Khiok-Khng Yeo,“An Intertextual Reading of Moral Freedom in the Analects and Galatians.” 271-289.

Translating the New Testament: Text, Translation, Theology. (McMaster New Testament Studies). Edited by Stanley E. Porter and Mark J. Boda. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2009. 0802863779, 9780802863775.

Paul and Corinth; two articles on Galatians

Ekaterini G. Tsalampouni brings word of a new volume published in Greece on Paul and Corinth that includes two articles on Galatians. As you will notice, not all of the articles are in Greek.

Ερμηνεία -Θεολογία – Ιστορία ερμηνείας – Φιλολογία – Φιλοσοφία – Εποχή; Saint Paul and Corinth: 1950 Years Since the Writings of the Epistles to the Corinthians: Exegesis – Theology – History of Interpretation – Philology – Philosophy – St Paul’s Time. International Scholarly Conference Proceedings (Corinth, 23-25 September 2007). Edited by Constantine J. Belezos. Athens: Psichogios Publications (ΨΥΧΟΓΙΟΣ), 2009. There are two volumes: 9789604536597, 9789604536603. A sample of volume two can be seen here.

Without further ado, the two articles are:

Urs von Arx, “Gibt Paulus in 1 Kor 7 eine Interpretation von Gal 3,28? Zugleich ein Beitrag zur relativen Chronologieder Paulusbriefe.” 1.193-222.

Dieter Sänger, “Der Beitrag der Korintherbriefe zur Lokalisierungder Adressaten und zur Datierung des Galaterbriefs.” 2.619-640.

Gordon Fee interviewed

Nijay Gupta has posted an interview with Gordon Fee regarding his Galatians commentary in the Pentecostal Commentary series. It’s quite a short interview but you might be interested to know that other than his own commentary, Fee recommends Dunn and Bruce.

Galatian opponents work for Microsoft

It seems that Paul’s Galatian opponents have taken up employment at Microsoft as this screen shot from Microsoft Word makes clear.
