Galatians 1, 2—Commencing. After the salutation at the beginning of the first chapter, the first part of Galatians commences dealing with the issue at hand regarding law and grace •Concern of Paul: the believers in Galatia had been quickly influenced by those who would mix law and grace in the Gospel. This surprised Paul and caused him much concern. •Conversion of Paul: He speaks of his conversion from one who was very zealous for Judaism to one who preaches the Gospel of grace. •Calling of Paul: some experiences of Paul in his calling to minister to the Gentiles are given. •Confronting by Paul: he reports his encounter with Peter regarding law and grace practices. –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading
