Paul Did Not Teach "Stay in Slavery"

UPDATED: I’ve embedded the PDF for Professor Bartchy’s paper in a PDF viewer below.

The following is an important study, making very clear that lexicons are not always reliable guides to the meaning of Greek words, and that Paul’s teaching on slavery is in fact less conventional by Greco-Roman standards than is often thought,  and finally that Luther’s theology of vocation, and the subsequent development of that theology by later Lutheran scholars is based on a misunderstanding of the use of the Greek term for calling.
