Format: Hardcover
Herman Nicolaas Ridderbos (1909-2007) was a pastor and theologian in the Reformed Church in the Netherlands, and taught New Testament at the Theological School of the Reformed Churches of the Netherlands. He wrote many other books, such as Coming of the Kingdom, When the Time Had Fully Come: Studies in New Testament Theology, Paul: An Outline of His Theology, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1953 book, "If the apostolic conference [of Acts 15] is assumed to precede the writing of the letter to the Galatians, one must ask himself how it can be that a teaching so solemnly and definitively repudiated at Jerusalem can almost immediately be preached again in Galatia. ANSWER: heresy has never been abruptly and suddenly subjugated by the pronouncements of the church... Why does not Paul appeal simply to the pronouncements of the apostolic conference instead of entering newly upon profound argumentation about the freedom of the Gentiles from the ceremonial law? ANSWER: he had already communicated these pronouncements to the churches on his second journey (Acts 16:4). Hence, too, his marveling at the fact that they have so quickly allowed themselves to be brought around to the heresy (Gal 1:6). That ... he does not simply appeal to the utterances of the apostolic conference, but instead resorts to the resource of a new principal apology, that... is to be explained by the nature of the situation... Why does not Paul appeal to the utterances of James and Peter at the apostolic conference ...

Format: Paperback
"The Epistle of Paul to the Churches of Galatia" was written by the late Dutch theologian Herman Ridderbos in 1953 and was one of the first contributions to the New International Commentary of the New Testament. Sixty years later it is still one of the best commentaries on this writing of the Apostle Paul. Written in a scholarly but accessible fashion, Ridderbos does an excellent job of explaining each passage in this epistle in a way that clear and concise. As students of the New Testament know, there are a number of controversial passages in this Pauline letter. Ridderbos does an excellent job of noting the different interpretations of what Paul is saying. Although Ridderbos's Reformed perspective is in evidence, he is charitable to those with whose interpretation he disagrees.

Like most of the other commentaries in the NICNT, more technical matters, including discussions of the Greek text, are put in footnotes, a practice that keeps digressions and what may appear to some to be minutia from cluttering the commentary on the letter itself.

This commentary also has an excellent introductory section that discusses the occasion, the content and character, the churches being addressed, the date, and the authenticity of this epistle.

Format: Hardcover
A very thorough and readable commentary on the book of Galatians, using the best of conservative modern scholarship.
A great tool for any serious student of the New Testament.
