Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
A province in Asia Minor. Here the apostle Paul preached, and it should seem that the apostle Peter had done the same, for he directs his first Epistle to the Jews scattered there. Here there were several churches, for Paul expressly sends his Epistle to the churches of Galatia. It should seem by the account which we have, (Acts 16:6 and again, Acts 18:23) that Paul laboured personally with the Galatians, at two different periods, if not oftener. The church of Christ finds cause to bless God for having directed Paul's mind to this people, which gave rise to this most blessed Epistle. The plan of justification by Christ is so plainly and beautifully set forth in that Epistle, that we have daily reason to adore the riches of grace for the mercy. Neither is it probable, that the church would have known the history of Sarah and Hagar, to have been a type and allegory of the covenants, had not that Scripture said so.
