The Epistle to Galatians is a book of the [[New Testament]]. It was a letter written by the [[apostle Paul]] to the [[church]] in the Roman province of Galatia in central Anatolia.
===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]].
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]].
