Authorship and time of writing

This letter was probably Paul's first. Many scholars believe it was written prior to the Jerusalem Council of Acts 15 to openly address the issue of circumcision and justification by faith to the Christians of Galatia.

Themes

The main theme running through the letter is that of justification through faith alone. Paul explains that the Galatian Christians are not accepted by God because of their obedience to the Mosaic Law but rather through God's grace through Jesus Christ.
