This epistle to the Galatians is polemical in nature because in it Paul is upbraiding the Galatians for having so easily turned away from the true doctrine of the gospel and fallen into the works of the law, which they were preaching as necessary for justification. But when Paul starts teaching about true righteousness, which is found in Christ Jesus without regard to the law or to works, the tone changes and the epistle becomes more didactic in nature. ...

The false apostles had led the people astray by preaching circumcision and the works of the law, insisting that they were necessary for justification by faith. The apostle refutes their position and asserts that even uncircumcised Gentiles can belong to Christ. ...
