I hold an M.Div. from Mid-America Reformed Seminary (2000) and am an independent scholar-publisher. Primary fields of biblical expertise are in Pauline studies, but I have also done considerable work in many other biblical and theological areas, including sacraments, covenant theology, etc.

comment Who or what are the “no gods” in Galatians 4:8?
Thanks, Monica. I'm working on a commentary on Galatians at the moment, so a lot of my answers will likely end up in those topics.

comment Who or what are the “no gods” in Galatians 4:8?
"No gods" in v 8 refers to their past to the worship as God of what were not in fact gods, i.e. idols. The present is referred to in v 9, and here Paul uses the language of elements.
