This study discusses the Book of Galatians. This is an important study for believers who believe and practice Torah as viable today.
Usually when the subject of the law is discussed with other Christians that oppose this practice, they will usually refer to the book of Galatians. As if the book of Galatians is a complete negation of the law. And that, the Book of Galatians supersedes other parts of the Bible.
If this were true, then it would supersede the words of our Messiah in Matthew 5:19.
19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
It was Yeshua that made this statement and many others that support Torah, the Law.
The Book of Galatians is not some higher authority as some would lead us to believe. In fact, a careful study proves that the Book of Galatians is consistent with the rest of the Bible.
The Book of Galatians was written to the asssemblies Paul had established prior to 49 A.D. These were Pagans or Gentiles that had been converted to Christianity. They were not former Jews by any means. Galatia is believed to be in Central Asia Minor, it includes Iconium, Lystra, Derbe. Galatians were a branch of the Gauls, originally from North of the Black Sea and split off from the main migration westward to France. They settled in Asia minor 3rd Century B.C.
