Commentary

Ver. 1-3. Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by men, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead;) and all the brethren which are with me.

Unto the Churches of Galatia: Grace is to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ.

Not only this exordium but, so to speak, the whole Epistle, is full of a vehement and lofty spirit. Always address one’s disciples with mildness.

Even when they needed severity, would be to play the corrupter and enemy, not the teacher. Wherefore our Lord too.

Who generally spoke gently to His disciples, here and there uses sterner language, and at one time pronounces a blessing, at another a rebuke.

Thus, having said to Peter, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona, Matm and having promised to lay the foundation of the Church 16.

Upon his confession, shortly afterward He says, Gets thee Matm behind Me, Satan: thou art an offense unto Me.

Again, on 16, 2 another occasion, Are ye also yet without understanding?

Matt And what awe He inspired them with John’s saying, that, when they beheld Him conversing with appears from the Samaritan woman.

Though they reminded Him to take food, no one ventured to say, Why talkest Thou, or what Johnseekest Thou, with her?

Thus taught, and walking in the 27. steps of his Master, Paul hath varied his discourse according to the need of his disciples, at one time using knife and cautery, at another applying mild remedy.

T.rinthians says, What will ye? shall I come unto you with 3? Cor.4, a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness? but to the Galatians, O foolish Galatians.

Which reproof he gives not l. 3, once only, but a second time, and towards the conclusion he al.

6, says with a reproachful allusion to them, Let no man trouble me; then he soothes them again with the words, My little 1.4, children, of whom I travail in birth again: and so in many other instances

Now that this Epistle breathes an indignant spirit, is obvious to everyone on the first perusal; but I must explain the cause of his anger against his disciples.

Slight and unimportant it could not be, or he would not have used such vehemence.

For to be exasperated by chance matters is the part of the little-minded, morose, and peevish; just as it is that of the indolent and sluggish to shrink from reproof in weighty ones.

This was not Paul’s character: what then was the offense which roused him? it was grave and momentous, one which had estranged them all from Christ, as Gal. 5, he himself says further on.
