Description

Paul’s letter to the Galatians has been at the center of doctrinal controversies from the day it was written, and this is reflected in a surfeit of commentaries on the epistle. What sets this new one by Tarazi apart from the crowd is its focus on the first-century controversy addressed by the epistle rather than on the modern controversies that have swirled around it ever since Luther made his interpretation of it the center of the Protestant Reformation.

As a result, this commentary defies classification in terms of which church’s perspective it adopts. It may be considered Eastern Orthodox only in the sense that it was written by an Orthodox scholar, not in the sense that it was written to support a predetermined “Orthodox viewpoint.” In his expositions of the text, the author explains carefully what the Apostle Paul meant and the historical circumstances prompting him to write what he did, and presents evidence intended to allow readers to judge for themselves as to the validity of the author’s conclusions.
