Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988958171, Paperback)Peter, writing about Paul’s epistles, makes the assessment that there “are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction” (2Peter 3:16). One has to believe that, among other passages, Peter had the Epistle to the Galatians in mind. Perhaps no other epistle of the Apostle Paul has fostered more debate than the Epistle to the Galatians, particularly over the issue of the place of the Torah in the life of the believer. Very often, when the question of the “Law” or “Torah” is at hand, those who consider it to have been abolished by Yeshua through His death on the cross make a direct appeal to Galatians. But is this what Paul is teaching? Does he tell the Galatian believers that they should have nothing to do with the Torah since it is an instrument of condemnation and has no relevance to believers in Yeshua? In this Commentary, Hegg shows that if Paul is given the chance to speak on his own terms without being interpreted through millennia of Christian theology, his message to the Galatians is entirely consistent with his own testimony found in his Epistle to the Romans: “For I joyfully concur with the Torah of God in the inner man…” (Rom 7:22).
