CROMHOUT, Markus. Paul's 'former conduct in the Judean way of life' (Gal 1:13) ... or not?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1. ISSN 2072-8050.
Various arguments are made about Paul's 'Jewishness/ Judeanness' as a follower of Jesus Messiah, for example, that Paul essentially remained to be 'Jewish/Judean' and that he still fully operated in the world of 'Judaism'. These claims are investigated by answering three sets of questions derived from a proposed general model of ethnicity, which is developed with the help of cultural anthropology (ethnicity theory).
Keywords : Paul; Galatians; New Testament; hermeneutics; Jewishness.
