Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a historical sketch of the people Paul in his letter to &t;the churches of Galatia&t; characterizes as &t;those unnerving you&t; and as &t;those upsetting you&t;. It focuses on what does Paul's letter allow us to know about the identity of these people, their message, their aims, and their impact on the &t;Galatians&t;?' It confines to the verses in which Paul explicitly mentions the new preachers in order to provide a basic historical sketch of their identity, message, aims and impact. The chapter surveys the relevant passages, interrogating them initially without reference to the contexts in which they occur and thus rather atomistically. It then surveys them again, this time with reference to the larger literary and argumentative contexts while also taking into account the other verses surveyed.

Keywords: aims; Galatia; identity; impact; message; new preachers; Paul
