    Always bothered me that Paul plagiarized this maimar Chazal in Galatians 3:28

    Paul was before R’ Anan; it could be the letter to the Galacians came first.

    Paul borrowed from the Shelo Asani berakhos. (And that could have been Eliyahu’s reference here too.) We understand these berakhos as thanking Hashem for having more mitzvos than people in the other category. Paul’s letter is all about how such distinctions are due to being under the “curse” of the Law, and under Yeish”u, all are equal.

    Here we are apparently contrasting the glory of being a metzuveh with the more real worth that comes from being an oseh.

And your thoughts...?
