In Galatians, the apostle Paul makes his most passionate and direct appeal for a gospel free of ethnic or ritual exclusion. Paul's gospel is that of salvation through Christ alone--in him there is "neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." By placing Paul's discussion firmly within its historical context, R. Alan Cole illuminates the potency and power of Paul’s message to the Galatian church.The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.
