This week we finish up our journey through I Corinthians, and read entirely through II Corinthians as well as Galatians.
In between I and II Corinthians, Paul visited Corinth another time (a painful visit) and wrote at least one other letter that is now lost. It would seem that the situation in Corinth was still complicated and Paul felt attacked. He defends himself with some of his important teachings - forgiving others, God's new agreement that comes from the Spirit of the living God, the importance of being a person of Christ and giving generously to God's people in Jerusalem, and finally ends with his own experience of how God changed his life.
The book of Galatians is thought to be Paul's earliest letter, corresponding with the events of Acts 11:30. Here he addresses a group of churches in a Roman province known as Galatia, what is now part of modern-day Turkey. This letter mainly addresses the question of whether the Mosaic law is binding on Gentiles.
