So what’s the big deal? St. Paul had recently planted a church in Galatia of Asia Minor, and the congregation is doing well until a group of outsiders encourages the Galatians to add some ancient observances from the Hebrew Scriptures to their Christian practices.  Don’t the Galatians love God and want to obey him more fully? If so, why shouldn’t they add some older biblical practices to their regimen?

The epistle to the Galatians finds Paul at his most passionate as he teaches that living by God’s grace plus anything else means that grace is no longer grace––and that living by “grace plus,” whether in a religious or secular guise, is actually a form of self-salvation (i.e., “If I do this, I’ll get this”). Paul’s words to the Galatian church speak into a culture of self-saviors, whether then or now, and in this letter we learn of what makes Christianity truly unique, and what is truly good news for our world: grace alone.
