Wakefield examines the function of Paul's citations of scripture in his argument against the law in Galatians 3:1-14. Drawing on selected insights of intertextuality while helping to clarify its assumptions and implications as a method of biblical study, Wakefield examines the "anonymous intertexts" and "ungrammaticalities" that arise from the scriptural citations in Galatians 3:1-14. The resulting insights lead to the conclusion that Paul rejects the law-not only for salvation, but also as a means for Christian living-not because of any inherent defect but because its sphere of operation is the old age, not the new age initiated by Christ. Wakefield accordingly proposes a revised reading of Galatians 3:10: "Because no one is justified in the law before God, it is clear that 'The righteous will live by faith.'"

Andrew H. Wakefield is Assistant Professor of New Testament and Greek at Campbell University Divinity School in Buies Creek, North Carolina.
