Galatians, the most misunderstood book of the Bible!

Galatians is the hinge on which Christianity turns. What if we had it wrong?

The church as we know it took shape based upon a misunderstanding of Paul’s epistle to the Galatians. First Fruits of Zion takes a fresh look at Paul and his most-misunderstood epistle in this ground-breaking collection of teachings. In The Holy Epistle to the Galatians, D. Thomas Lancaster makes the difficult words of Paul simple to understand in an easy-reading collection of sermons on the epistle from a Messianic Jewish perspective. His careful, Jewish reading of Galatians turns Christian interpretation upside down.

  • Grace vs. Law
  • Faith vs. Works
  • Old Covenant vs. New Covenant
  • Jews, Gentiles, Torah, and Messiah

Lancaster takes us deep inside the Jewish world of the Apostles to wrestle through the difficult questions facing the apostolic community. Drawing on recent Pauline scholarship, The Holy Epistle to the Galatians completely reverses conventional interpretations, revealing Paul in continuity with Torah, Jewish tradition, and broader apostolic-era Judaism.

This book helps repair the breach between Judaism and Christianity, turning back nineteen hundred years of misunderstanding.

Peter says that Paul’s letters contain things that are hard to understand which lawless people twist as they do the rest of the scriptures.

Bible readers generally understand Galatians as Paul’s dissertation against the Torah and against Judaism. More than any other book of the New Testament, Galatians defines the line between Messianic Judaism and greater Christianity.

Paul was a prodigy educated in the most elite schools of Pharisaism. He wrote and thought from that Jewish background, rendering several key passages of his work incomprehensible to readers unfamiliar with rabbinic literature. This collection of sermons on a Messianic Jewish approach to Galatians opens Paul’s world and provides the historical, Jewish context necessary to decipher the epistle. In an easy-to-read, narrative style, D. Thomas Lancaster (Torah Club), takes his readers from one end of the epistle to the other, challenging conventional interpretations and offering new insights to reveal the Jewish Paul.

"I was advancing in Judaism beyond
many of my own age among my people."

Galatians 1:14

“See with what large letters
I am writing to you with my own hand.”

Galatians 6:11

This Galatians commentary by Lancaster is a rarity among readable and affordable books on Paul, and (I hope) a sought-after commodity in coming years.

Lancaster shows that Christianity has sin on its hands, historically speaking, for distorting the gospel in a way to keep Jewish people from faith in Jesus.

The Holy Epistle to the Galatians is an inspiring read that will motivate readers to see and live the bigger picture of God’s way, to be led by the Spirit, to long for the faith of Israel to be in Messiah.

Being open to new information about the Bible and how to read it, can help us understand that some traditional Christian interpretations of the Bible need to be updated as well.
