Author(s): BIANCHINI, Francesco
Volume: 94 Issue: 1 Date: 2013
In Gal 5,13–6,10 we find three much-debated passages in which the meaning and connotation, positive or negative, of νόμος are not clear: 5,14; 5,23b; 6,2. This article seeks to shed light on these verses, considered within the context of the letter. Starting with the text as it stands, it is shown how it is possible to understand the use of νόμος in the setting of a coherent development of Paul’s thought in Galatians. Lastly, in view of the paraenetic context in which νόμος is used, some general indications are brought together which are useful for Pauline ethics.
