Distracted: The Book of Galatians

Galatia was a weird place. The people who lived there were the descendants of Celts who had moved there after causing trouble in Greece. Relocating to what is now central Turkey, they terrified their neighbors by raiding and pillaging before settling down to a life apart from their Greek-speaking neighbors. They did not worship the Roman gods, did not speak Greek or Latin and preferred to live in small fortified towns rather than the cities they took when they moved in. And somehow, someone preached the gospel to these people; and they did it early.

Paul’s letter to the Galatians is one of his earliest, dating to around AD 48-50; and it wrestles not only with issues of theology but also of authority and common sense – something the barbarian Galatians were still trying to figure out. It is a fascinating glimpse into a little understood people group and the churches that thrived there in the early years of the Church.
