Galatians: Introduction

File:PaulT.jpg

One thing I like to do when studying a book of the bible is answers the five Ws

Who? Paul
What? A letter to the church of Galatia
When? 50-60 A.D.
Where? Paul was in prison.
Why? To correct false gospels being presented in Galatia

Paul, an apostle—sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— and all the brothers and sisters with me, To the churches in Galatia:
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Galatians 1:1-5

Paul's letters have always been inspiring to me. Look at verses 3 and 4:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

Jesus died for you he for the present, for the present sinners, the present evils and everything that exists now. He died for all of in 2013. As Jesus carried the burdens of sin, he was carry every sin that has been done and will be done. 
Jesus never sinned, but he had to carry you sins, until he could bear them no longer, then he gave of his spirit for you. He died. For you.

Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
John 19:30b
