The Epistle of Galatians is addressed “to the churches of Galatia” (Gal 1:2). “Galatia” was used in two different ways during the NT Period. As an “ethnic” term, it referred to an area in central Asia Minor where people from a Celtic background from Gaul came to live. As a “political” term, Galatia meant the original territory combined with new territories annexed by the Romans in 25 BC. This “political” Galatia includes cities like Pisidian Antioch, Iconium, Lystra and Derbe.
The Apostle Paul wrote Galatians to refute the false teachings of the Judaizers. The “Judaizers” were those who taught that new, Gentile believers had to be circumcised in order to be saved (see, Acts 15:1). Essentially, they required adherence to the Law and to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved."Acts 15:1
