Chapter Summary

This chapter studies Galatians 3:10-14 in the light of Qumran. It starts with two examples of Paul's language and terminology from a Qumran perspective, and moves to a central topic of Paul's theology. The chapter explains the relationship between Qumran and Paul as neither an improbable genetic relationship nor literary dependence. The three topics of Galatians 3:10-14 on which the chapter comments (the works of the Law, the curse, and the justification by grace) show clearly how Paul's thought has been informed by his reflection on the biblical text to which he refers four times in the five verses, two of them introduced explicitly by "for it is written", in a way similar to how the thought reflected in the Dead Sea Scrolls has been informed by reflection on the same Scriptures. But all these references are placed by Paul in the service of his central message: faith in Christ.

Keywords: Dead Sea Scrolls; Galatians 3:10-14; Paul; Qumran
