TOLMIE, Francois D.. Tendencies in the interpretation of Galatians 3:28 since 1990. Acta theol. [online]. 2014, vol.34, suppl.19, pp.105-129. ISSN 2309-9089.

A recent investigation of research published on the Letter to the Galatians has shown that 3:28 is the individual verse in the letter that receives the most attention from scholars. Accordingly, the purpose of this article is to offer an overview of tendencies in the research pertaining to this verse since 1990. The overview is structured in terms of the following categories: Translation, grammar, origin, Paul's views expressed in this verse, new interpretative approaches, the verse viewed in terms of other Pauline/Biblical texts/perspectives from the world of the New Testament, the Wirkungsgeschichte of the verse, and the implications of the verse for church and society.

Keywords : Pauline Literature; Letter to the Galatians; Galatians 3:28; History of interpretation.
