This is a book that was required for a class I took last year on the Pauline corpus. The book provides insight into why Paul said what he said and why others wanted to be associated with him as well as against him. Heirarchy and skin color were important markers as to how people were valued and treated in that day and time, issues that still exist for us in the USA. How closely do we follow the baptismal formula of Galatian 3:28, believed to be authentically Pauline??
