  • Ben Weaver on Galatians 1
    Verse 9: Let him be accursed??? In the Gr. dictionary, this Gr. word anathema; also used in 1 Cor.16:22, is presented as a compound word. Ana is defined as "thoroughly" and thema means "to lay a foundation of faith or doctrine." The word foundation in ch.3:11 is from the same Gr. root as our thema. Paul may have meant, "If anyone is wrong, thoroughly lay the foundation for new testament faith.
