Description: The New Beacon Bible Commentary is an engaging, indispensable reference tool to aid individuals in every walk of life in the study and meditation of God's Word. Written from the Wesleyan theological perspective, it offers insight and perceptive scholarship to help you unlock the deeper truths of Scripture and garner an awareness of the history, culture, and context attributed to each book of study. Readable, relevant, and academically thorough, it offers scholars, pastors, and laity a new standard for understanding and interpreting the Bible in the 21st century. ∂This letter claims the apostle Paul wrote it. No serious contemorary scholar questions that claim. In fact, most appeal to Galations to assess the authenticity of the other Pauline letters. It remains uncertain what influence Paul's anonymous co-senders may also have had on the letter's composition.
