    Galatians Sparknotes

    • 1011 Words

    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. The audience of the letter: The Galatians were easily misled and fickle in their own ways, but at the same time they were eager to…

    All scholars are in agreement that Galatians was written by Paul. Though some argue for a very early date, making it of the earliest letters he wrote. Some evidence for this is the lack of any reference to the Jerusalem Council (Acts 15), however, his reference to taking Titus to Jerusalem with him in Gal. 2:1 means he already returned from his first missionary journey (Acts 13-14), therefore the Council probably already took place. Galatians may date to the late fifties. “Galatia” became a…

    wrote to the churches of Galatia, in Galatia, within late 40’s - mid 50’s CE to share the defense of his Gentile mission as a whole and the understanding of the law on which it is based (Gal 1:1-2). Paul was appalled that the Galatians were able to believe another gospel so quickly. He wanted the Galatians to realize that they should be fighting for God’s approval, not their peers (Gal 1:10). While this was occuring, the early Christian movement was still connected to Judaism, and an increasing…

    Paul begins his his letter by introducing himself and sends greeting to the church in Galatia. Then, he dives right in by asking why the church is letting others distort the gospel that Paul has given them.

He writes a brief summary of how Jesus called him to turn from his evil ways, on the road to Damascus. Paul continues by talking about how he met the apostles in…

    the conclusion that these leaders of the Galatian community have “pervert[ed] the gospel of Christ” (1.7), and is a situation he must address swiftly. From the information given at hand, we can infer that the situation in Galatia is a serious manner to Paul, and he was provoked to compose this letter to address the misconceptions in the community. Even more, that Paul has multiple aims in writing this letter by him not only addressing the persecution he has received as a Messianist Jew…

    τὸ πρότερον (at the first): This could mean ‘first time’ or ‘originally.’ Here Paul uses it as an adverb modifying εὐηγγελισάμην. “It does not in itself indicate whether Paul means to refer to the one and only time he visited Galatia, or to the first of two visits…All elements of the context, however, favor a reference to the only visit Paul has made to Galatia….Had there been a second visit, Paul would surely have said how things went on that occasion, adding something like: ‘and the second…
