What does St. Paul mean when he explains that no one, not even an “angel from heaven,” can contradict the gospel that was preached in Galatia? To what does Paul appeal in making the claim that his authority comes directly from God and not from men? How do the norms of civil law shed light on Paul’s opening argument in Galatians 1? Why do fascists and dictators, who control every aspect of civil society, still seek legitimacy from their respective constitutions? What does all of this have to do with a dead guy names Hammurabi? Richard and Fr. Marc discuss St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians.
