Much contemporary scholarship on Paul has looked for implicit narratives in the back of Paul’s scriptural allusions, particularly within the wake of Richard B. Hays’s groundbreaking paintings at the apostle’s appropriation of Scripture. A. Andrew Das experiences six proposals for “grand thematic narratives” at the back of the common sense of Galatians—potentially, six reasons for the cloth of Paul’s theology: the covenant (N. T. Wright); the inflow of countries to Zion (Terence Donaldson); Isaac’s close to sacrifice (Scott Hahn, Alan Segal); the Spirit as cloud within the barren region (William Wilder); the Exodus (James Scott, Sylvia Keesmaat); and the imperial cult (Bruce iciness et al.). Das weighs every one of those proposals exegetically and reveals them wanting—more examples of what Samuel Sandmel famously categorised “parallelomania” than of sound exegetical strategy. He turns ultimately to mirror at the hazards of (admittedly desirable) totalizing tools and lifts up a 7th inspiration with larger declare to proof within the textual content of Galatians: Paul’s allusions to Isaiah’s servant passages.
