An introduction to the letter Paul wrote to the Galatians

One of the biggest challenges we as believers in Y’Shua the Messiah have is to get to a good understanding of the concept of the salvation we have through Messiah and the need for us to keep the commandments. Most people are pretty clear about this fact once they have done their initial Torah cycle and have been re-acquainted with the content of the first five books. When we then start studying the books of the apostle Paul again, lots of people have questions about exactly what Paul is saying. Is Paul really saying that we are under a curse if we keep the commandments? If faith in Y’Shua is our salvation, why do we need to keep commandments? You certainly hear your Christian friends asking, “Have you read the book of Galatians?” Do we understand what Paul is trying to say in this letter.
