The letter to the Galatians has had a large effect on the development of Christian theology. It was written as a response to members of the Messianic Circumcision Party trying to convince new gentile believers that they had to be circumcised in order to be saved.
There is much confusion about Paul's use of the phrase 'works of the law.' In context he is referring to the oral law of the Pharisees and not to the written law of Moses. This distinction is often lost on modern readers of the letter.
The sermon on Leviticus 16-18 serves as a coda to the study.
