    While there is controversy about the authorship of Galatians due to the style and context of the book, it is evident that the author is Paul according to most historians. James Boice notes in his commentary, “Paul, as the author, is mentioned by name not only at the beginning (1:1) but also toward the end of the letter in verse (5:2).” The first people who first became known as the Galatians were known as Celts from the barbarian tribal stock, also known as the Gauls. There are difficulties in finding out when Galatians was written, where it was written, and to whom it was exactly written to. There are debates as to whether this letter was sent to the ethnic Galatians who invaded and occupied central Asia Minor (North Galatian theory), or to the racially mixed inhabitants of the Roman province of Galatia (South Galatian theory). Even though there is not much evidence as to which side is correct or incorrect, historians lean more towards agreeing with the South Galatian theory because they find it hard to believe that Paul would write a letter addressed to a group of people he spent little to no time with.

    gap between the Law of Moses and the New Covenant. The council wrote out those things which they agreed are of importance regarding obedience and purity. The “Agenda” of the church is to bring the gospel message to the ends of earth. The council recognized this, and set up guidelines to follow that would help the gentiles remain pure of heart; and not hinder the furtherance of the message by placing obstacles in the path of those who would chose to follow Christ. IV. Connections to Galatians 2:…

    I am writing about faith and the Required Human Response as found in Galatians; however, I wanted to point out that faith is mentioned in 18 verses in Galatians, 287 verses in the New Testament and 171 verses in the Old Testament. The Pauline epistles were written to the churches and individuals who already believed in Christ so throughout Paul calls for the fruit of repentance and faith. The apostle Paul wrote the book of Galatians in the form of letters that were written to the churches he…

    James specifically designates his writing to “the twelve tribes in the Dispersion” (ESV, James 1:1). This can be taken as a figurative representation of the scattered Gentile church, however, as stated by Robert H. Gundry in A Survey of the New Testament, it is more likely to Jewish Christians living outside Palestine” (Gundry 518). This is defended by the overarching theme of Jewishness throughout the letter. Specific examples of this can be found in the language employed, James 5:4 refers to…
