No doubt there will be to-and-fro on “the brother of the Lord” passage in Galatians 1:19. I would love to see any such discussion go beyond the face-value interpretation of the words and to explore both the provenance and nature of the source containing that line. That is, some serious discussion of the historical evidence itself:
- The Function of “Brother of the Lord” in Galatians 1:19 (Tim Widowfield)
- Putting James the Brother of the Lord to a Bayesian Test (Neil Godfrey)
