Susan Grove Eastman, “Israel and the Mercy of God: A Re-reading of Galatians 6.16 and Romans 9-11.” New Testament Studies. 56:3 (2010): 367-395.
Eastman argues that in Galatians 6:16 and Romans 9-11 “Israel” refers to the Jews. You can read a short abstract of this article online.

It is a busy week in Galatians blogging so I thought I had better post a list before I’m overwhelmed.
Mark Goodacre reports that the Biblidex project has posted a video for Galatians.
Steve Runge has posted thrice on textual variation in Galatians 1:8. His emphasis is on how discourse grammar would interpret the variant readings. Post 1, Post 2, Post 3.
Ardel Caneday has a new blog, ἐξήγησις, exegesis for Greek readers, and has posted on “ἄνθρωπος ἐξ ἔργων νόμου in Galatians 2:16; a man from the works of the law in Galatians 2:16?” and “οἱ ἐκ πίστεως = οἱ πιστεύοντες in Galatians 3? those of faith(fulness) = those who believe in Galatians 3?”
If that doesn’t keep you busy for a while you have too much spare time on your hands!

My Italian, or is it Latin, isn’t so hot but here’s an article on the relationship of Galatians 3:8b and Genesis 12:3b. Maybe someone can read it and let us know what it’s about or provide a link to an abstract.
