We sincerely regret to inform you that the N.T. Wright panel discussion and lecture scheduled for next weekend, June 18-19, have been postponed. While we had every hope and expectation that our very special guest would finally be able to join us, the COVID-19 travel ban on non-US citizens traveling to the states from the United Kingdom has not been lifted. N.T. Wright is as disappointed as we are; he was so looking forward to being with us in Houston. However, we are already working on a new date for this event, possibly as early as this Fall. The new dates will be announced as soon as possible, so keep checking the Lanier Theological Library website for updates and details.
“Galatians in Three Dimensions”
Galatians is normally assumed to be about “how people get saved.” There is truth in that assumption, but this letter is also about two other important things. First, Paul addresses how justification by faith forms Jesus’ followers into a single family with no ethnically-based division. Second, Paul explains how to cope with the fact that this new family is bound to appear disruptive in its surrounding culture. Holding all this together is vital for understanding Paul’s meaning for the first-century Galatians and how it applies to us today.
N. T. Wright is Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at University of St. Andrews in Scotland and Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.
