The Oxford Bible Commentary Line-by-line commentary for the New Revised Standard Version Bible.

Date.

Dates proposed range from 49 to 58 CE. If Paul wrote in 49 or 50, Galatians would be the earliest of his letters. If Paul wrote towards the end of the 50s, Galatians was written not long before Romans. Dating Galatians is closely related to a decision on two major questions: the location of the Galatian churches, and the relationship of Gal 2:1–10 to Acts. If, as seems likely, Paul's account of his visit to Jerusalem in 2:1–10 is his equivalent of Luke's account of the Jerusalem council in Acts 15 , then Galatians was written at some point after that event which is usually dated to between 49 and 51 CE. (See further GAL 2:1–10 and IPC BI.4.) The extent of the development in Paul's thinking between Galatians and Romans is only one of several issues that depend on the date one assigns to this letter. However, a decision cannot be made with any degree of confidence.
