The Letter of St. Paul to the Galatians
One of the indisputably genuine Pauline letters, Marcion, an early heretic around 144 AD (Marcion and his followers rejected the Old Testament as a whole) asserted that the letter to the Galatians was the first of St. Paul’s Epistles. The dating of this letter by modern scholars depends on whether it was written to the northern or southern portion of Galatia (with the former representing the later date). Cornel and the majority of supporters of the South-Galatian theory suppose, with much greater probability, that it was written about 53-54 AD. Those who defend the North-Galatian theory place it as late as 57 or 58 AD.
