The Messiah ben Abraham in Galatians: A Response to Joel Willitts

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

In his article in this issue of JSPL, Joel Willitts gives a fair, attentive review of my book Christ among the Messiahs: Christ Language in Paul and Messiah Language in Ancient Judaism (New York: Oxford University Press, 2012). In this response, I answer his objection that my book fails to account for the Davidic aspect of Paul’s messianism, and I assess Willitts’s own proposal regarding the Christology of Galatians.
