A quick thought
Chris VanLandingham's Judgment and Justification in Early Judaism and the Apostle Paul is an extremely challenging and thought-provoking read. If he is right then, well, ... yikes! But I do wonder if his thesis, which I shall review here shortly, fails to really account for Paul's rhetoric against 'works of law' (Gal. 2:16; 3:2, 5, 10, 12).
