Example text

Five of the six occurrences of “works of the law” are clearly related to the issue of justification (2:16 [3x], 3:2, 10). ” (NASB). The Galatian problem, as previously shown, involved both “getting in” and “staying in,” and the dispute revolved in part around how works of the law related to both justification and the ongoing Christian life. The meaning of the phrase “works of the law” is important, and hotly contested. Some, such as Moo,15 Schreiner,16 Kruse,17 Westerholm,18 and Longenecker,19 see “works of the law” as simply works required by the Old Testament law.

Longenecker comments, “The postpositive ga/r [the Greek conjunction left out by the NIV] here has both explanatory and continuative functions, and so is probably to be translated “for, you see . ” Paul often switches pronouns, and Galatians is an example par excellence. ” (3:1). Then he moves from the third person Old Testament quote, “The man who does these things will live by them” (3:12) to the first person plural, “[Christ] redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles” (3:14).

69 The new perspective on Paul denies that Galatians is primarily about justification or works-righteousness, and that Judaism was a works-oriented religion. Instead, it argues that Galatians is about salvation-history and Paul’s attempt to deal with the inclusion of the Gentiles. The law must be done away with because it “fosters Jewish exclusiveness”70 and prohibits Gentiles from being part of the people of God. Paul is “down” on the “works of the law” simply because they are Jewish identity markers, not because they are works in contrast to faith.
