"Paul writes to the churches in Galatia about his trouble in the leadership of Jerusalem. It
is here that we learn about a confrontation Paul has with Peter, mentioned nowhere else
in the New Testament. Paul writes to the Galatians because their relationship with Jesus
Christ deviated to a rigid compliance of the Old Covenant. People were putting their
faith into their religious works, not the atoning work of Christ. Paul was not attempting
to divide the church leadership. He was making a point about how we behave and what
we believe reflects our relationship (or lack thereof) with Jesus Christ. In Galatians 2,
we see that Paul speaks openly and honestly about his conflict because it was based on
a vital truth: Jesus Christ is LORD and paid the penalty for sin once and for all, and as
sinners we are justified by His grace and live godly lives by trusting in Him alone.
