The Letter to the Galatians
St. Paul's letter to the Christian communities of Galatia is the first of the "great epistles" of "the apostle to the Gentiles." It has been called the "Magna Carta of Christian liberty" because the focus of St. Paul's message is that Jesus Christ has freed those who believe in Him from bondage to the legalism of the old Law and from slavery to sin, and He has placed all who come in faith to embrace Him as Lord and Savior in a position of true liberty. St. Paul's argument is that the life-transforming Cross of Jesus Christ makes way for the believer's deliverance from the uncompromising weight of the Law, the curse of sin, and the unfulfilling burden of living entirely for self. St. Paul describes a dramatic faith-union with Jesus Christ that is revealed in the visible sign of the Sacrament of Christian Baptism that unites all believers to Christ and to each other as brothers and sisters in the family of God.
