Epistle to the
Galatians. The genuineness of this epistle is not called in
question. Its Pauline origin is universally acknowledged.
Occasion of. The churches of Galatia were founded by Paul himself
(Acts 16:6; Galatians 1:8; 4:13, 19). They seem to have been
composed mainly of converts from heathenism (4:8), but partly also
of Jewish converts, who probably, under the influence of Judaizing
teachers, sought to incorporate the rites of Judaism with
Christianity, and by their active zeal had succeeded in inducing the
majority of the churches to adopt their views (1:6; 3:1). This
epistle was written for the purpose of counteracting this Judaizing
tendency, and of recalling the Galatians to the simplicity of the
gospel, and at the same time also of vindicating Paul's claim to be
a divinely-commissioned apostle.
Time and place of writing. The epistle was probably written very
soon after Paul's second visit to Galatia (Acts 18:23). The
references of the epistle appear to agree with this conclusion. The
visit to Jerusalem, mentioned in Galatians 2:1-10, was identical
with that of Acts 15, and it is spoken of as a thing of the past,
and consequently the epistle was written subsequently to the council
of Jerusalem. The similarity between this epistle and that to the
Romans has led to the conclusion that they were both written at the
same time, namely, in the winter of A.D. 57-8, during Paul's stay in
Corinth (Acts 20:2, 3). This to the Galatians is written on the
urgency of the occasion, tidings having reached him of the state of
matters; and that to the Romans in a more deliberate and systematic
way, in exposition of the same great doctrines of the gospel.
Contents of. The great question discussed is, Was the Jewish law
binding on Christians? The epistle is designed to prove against the
Jews that men are justified by faith without the works of the law of
Moses. After an introductory address (Galatians 1:1-10) the apostle
discusses the subjects which had occasioned the epistle. (1) He
defends his apostolic authority (1:11-19; 2:1-14); (2) shows the
evil influence of the Judaizers in destroying the very essence of
the gospel (3 and 4); (3) exhorts the Galatian believers to stand
fast in the faith as it is in Jesus, and to abound in the fruits of
the Spirit, and in a right use of their Christian freedom
(5-6:1-10); (4) and then concludes with a summary of the topics
discussed, and with the benediction.
The Epistle to the Galatians and that to the Romans taken together
"form a complete proof that justification is not to be obtained
meritoriously either by works of morality or by rites and
ceremonies, though of divine appointment; but that it is a free
gift, proceeding entirely from the mercy of God, to those who
receive it by faith in Jesus our Lord."
In the conclusion of the epistle (6:11) Paul says, "Ye see how large
a letter I have written with mine own hand." It is implied that this
was different from his ordinary usage, which was simply to write the
concluding salutation with his own hand, indicating that the rest of
the epistle was written by another hand. Regarding this conclusion,
Lightfoot, in his Commentary on the epistle, says: "At this point
the apostle takes the pen from his amanuensis, and the concluding
paragraph is written with his own hand. From the time when letters
began to be forged in his name (2 Thessalonians 2:2; 3:17) it seems
to have been his practice to close with a few words in his own
handwriting, as a precaution against such forgeries...In the present
case he writes a whole paragraph, summing up the main lessons of the
epistle in terse, eager, disjointed sentences.
