Douglas A. Campbell on Galatians 5:11

The latest issue of NTS has an article by Campbell on Galatians 5:11

Douglas A. Campbell, “Galatians 5.11: Evidence of an Early Law-observant Mission by Paul?” New Testament Studies. 57:3 (2011): 325-347.

Campbell argues that Paul originally taught a “fully law-observant gospel” to Gentiles that included circumcision but later changed his mind and taught against that view. Personally I think this conclusion is untenable because the “offense of the cross” was always there but feel free to read his article and refute my ignorance!

  1. Can you flesh out (so to speak) your line of thinking about the “offense of the cross,” but I’m not quite seeing the connection from that to what Gal 5:11 means.

    I have the same question as Stephen. How do we know that Paul understood the “offense of the cross” from as early as the time of his conversion/calling?

    I have reviewed Campbell’s paper here.
