The meaning and rhetorical function of Galatians 3:10

The interpretation of Galatians 3:10 is one of the exegetical dilemmas in the Letter to the Galatians. In this article the various ways in which scholars explain the meaning of this verse are classified in terms of three aspects. In each instance the author summarises the various possibilities and justifies his own choice. The rhetorical function of Galatians 3:10 within the pericope 3:6-14 is discussed and it is argued that it is used rhetorically, both for the vilification (of the opponents) and as a rhetorical threat (to the readers).
