RCS NT 10: Galatians, Ephesians

RCS NT 10: Galatians, Ephesians

The gospel of justification by faith alone was discovered afresh by the
Reformers in the epistolary turrets of the New Testament: the letters to the
Galatians and the Ephesians.
At the epicenter of the exegetical revolution that rocked the Reformation era
was Paul's letter to the Galatians. There Luther, Calvin, Bullinger and scores
of others perceived the true gospel of Paul enlightening a situation parallel
to their own times--the encroachment of false teachers and apostates upon the
true teaching of salvation by grace through faith.
In Ephesians, the Reformers gravitated to what they understood to be the summit
of Paul's vision of salvation in Christ. Finding its source, beyond time, in
the electing love of God, the Reformers disseminated the letter's message of
temporal hope for Christians living under the duress of persecution.
For the Reformers, these epistles were living, capsule versions of Paul's
letter to the Romans, briefs on the theological vision of the celebrated
apostle. Probed and expounded in the commentaries and sermons found in this
volume, these letters became the very breath in the lungs of the Reformation
The range of comment on Galatians and Ephesians here spans Latin, German,
French, Dutch and English authors from a variety of streams within the
Protestant movement. Especially helpful in this volume is Gerald Bray's
editorial presentation of the development of tensions among the Reformers.
The epistles of Galatians and Ephesians open up a treasure house of ancient
wisdom, allowing these faithful Reformation witnesses to speak with eloquence
and intellectual acumen to the church today.
About the series: The Reformation Commentary on Scripture now makes large portions of the
Reformation's vast exegetical corpus available in a format that provides the
best interpretive insights from reformation writers - eminent and obscure - in
well edited manuscripts that provide a comprehensive view of the reformers on
particular books, passages, and individual verses. While a portion of the most
famous exegetical treatise written by 16th Century reformers has been available
in English, much has not--until now. The Reformation Commentary on Scripture
provides previously unavailable material from Latin, German, French, and Dutch
authors who represent myriad Protestant streams. Context for these works is
provided by editor Gerald Bray whose expert treatment highlights the tensions
that divided but also motivated and directed the best scholars of the
Reformation to the painstaking and tedious task of exegeting Scripture
carefully and in the original languages.
