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

The Recipients.

1.

Where were the Galatian churches located? Scholarly opinion continues to be evenly divided between advocates of the ‘north’ and the ‘south’ Galatia theories. The former defend the traditional view that the recipients of this letter were ethnic Galatians (Galatai, Celts, see 3.1) who lived in the north of the Roman province; the Galatian churches were near modern Ankara. The latter note that in Paul's day the Roman province of Galatia stretched from Pontus on the Black Sea to Pamphylia on the Mediterranean coast, and insist that Paul wrote to churches at Antioch, Lystra, and Derbe in the south.

2.

A decision is important for reconstruction of Paul's missionary journeys and career, but not for the interpretation of this letter. See Longenecker (1990: lxiii–lxviii), for a full discussion.
