Letter to the Galatians

“The subject of Paul’s letter to the Galatian Christians pertained to the problems created by those Jewish Christians who were insisting that Gentile converts submit to the rite of circumcision and observe other rituals to which the Jews were accustomed.  In his letter Paul strongly defends the Christian’s freedom from the law, and proclaims the new covenant relationship which Christians have through God’s grace.

Paul begins this letter by defending his own apostleship which apparently has been questioned by the Judaizers in Galatia in their attempt to discredit Paul’s teaching.  Paul urges that, as a specially chosen apostle, he received directly from God the good news of freedom in Christ.”
