Galatians 2:1-10; Isaiah 56:1-8
The frame of Galatians 2:1-10
The big picture: God's mending what humans have broken, and the cross of Christ is at the center of that picture.
The medium-sized picture: God's salvation is emerging out of the cradle of Judaism into the crucible of the Greco-Roman and Persian world, in which there will be all kinds of difficulties and persecution.
The micro-picture of Galatians: A conflict in a given church in Galatia in the middle of which Paul appeals to freedom in Christ, to the truth of the gospel of God's salvation, and to trust between believers.
