Here is the relevant comment from F.F. Bruce:Bruce, F.F. The Epistle to
the Galatians: A Commentary on the Greek Text. N.I.TG.T.C. Grand Rapids:
" the KANWN is apparently tje principle just laid down about the " new
creations" : the reference then is to the members of the new humanity who
are guided by this principle: in contrast to those who maintain the
continuing validity of circumcision and similar legal requirements"
I quite like the modesty of that " appafently", don't you?
