Galatians Introduction, 1:1 - 1:10

Galatians
GalatiansSteve Gregg

In this commentary on Galatians, Steve Gregg offers insights into the context and timeline of Paul's writing. He discusses Paul's qualifications as an apostle and his relationship with the other apostles, as well as the controversy surrounding circumcision and the requirements for salvation. He suggests that internal evidence points to an early date for the writing of Galatians, before the Jerusalem Council, and highlights Paul's powerful arguments against circumcision and the "weak beggarly elements" of the world. Throughout his commentary, Gregg offers a nuanced understanding of Paul's theology and teachings.
