Paul’s epistle to the Galatians may be the most controversial book in the New Testament. It’s been studied, it’s been talked about, it’s been argued about for generations. In fact, there are indications in the New Testament itself that it became a focus of controversy in the first century.
Why? Why this confusion? Who were these Galatians, and what was the nature of the problem that arose in this area?
Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) And all the brethren who are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God our Father: To whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
