Galatians 1:1 Who wrote it? Who was he writing to? Why was he writing? What did he say? As we approach any book of the Bible these questions need to be asked of the text if we wish to come to a proper understanding. Often, in the epistles of the New Testament, some of these questions can be answered as we consider the opening lines of the letter. These are important portions of the letter and we should not breeze by them in desire to get to the “important stuff”. These are important stuff.
