Kresta in the Afternoon – May 9, 2019 – Hour 1

+  Where Do I Start With...Galatians? (full hour)

  • Description: St Paul's letter to the Galatians is unique because it is the only epistle addressed to an entire region, rather than an individual church. The Galatians were early converts to Christianity who had been told they must first observe Mosaic rituals such as circumcision. In his letter, Paul addresses this issue and relates it to the larger issue of Justification. We take a look with Dr Peter Williamson.
