NT 502/708 – GREEK III/EXEGESIS OF GALATIANS ASHLAND THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY Spring 2008 Dr. David A. deSilva Friday 8:00 AM - 12:00 NOON NOTE: Advance preparation is required for the first class session.

Office Hours: M 8:15 AM - 4:00 PM Phone: (419) 289-5933 E-mail: ddesilva@ashland.edu I. Course Description Exegesis of Galatians provides students with an opportunity for Greek-text based exploration of a Pauline epistle, one that offers a particularly poignant blend of situational pastoral intervention and enduring theological significance. As the culmination of their first year of the study of Biblical Greek, students enrolling in this course will experience the fruits of reading a text in its entirety in its original language, analyzing modern translations, and engaging critical resources that assume familiarity with Greek. As an exegetical course, Exegesis of Galatians invites students into a close reading of the text as the basis for analysis of its argument, its intertextual conversations and engagement with the larger tradition, its rhetoric, and its theological and ethical contributions to Christian discipleship and community formation. II.Relationship to Curriculum Model As one would expect from the study of any part of the Scriptures, Galatians is a touchstone for the cultivation of each of the foundational pillars of the curriculum at Ashland Theological Seminary. The momentum of Paul’s arguments from Scripture drives the hearers to the declaration: “You all are one in Christ Jesus, and if you are Christ’s, then you are of the seed of Abraham, heirs according to promise” (3:29). The significance of this focal affirmation of our core identity in Christ is further unpacked by Paul as he lays out what it means to be such an “heir,” and what it is to be graced with such an inheritance as the Holy Spirit that cries out within us of our adoption as God’s own daughters and sons and that dwells within us to guide us into all that pleases God. Galatians preserves one of the most fully developed depictions of the life we live between the power of the flesh and the empowering of the Spirit, and the contest into which all who are born are
