I can't really figure out this journal. Articles are initially on-line, then when the annual volume is printed they go off-line. Do they then never reappear on-line, even to subscribers?
Yes, I have always found the set up a bit odd.
I can't believe that original Christianity was so complicated with such 'hair-splitting' issues.It is interesting that Gal.4:6has: "God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts", but Gal.3:5 has: "Does God give you his Spirit", omitting any reference to "his Son". This suggests that the original text of the letter was simpler referring only to the Spirit of God. In fact 3:2 seems to imply that the most important thing the recipients of the letter had done was to receive the Spirit.
