In Dr. Anders' section on Galatians, we learn that Paul wrote to the churches in the region of Galatia to dispel false teachings regarding legalism. Anders informs us that Ephesians was written to the Christians in Ephesus to remind them of the spiritual blessings they had in Christ and the importance of living a life that reflected those blessings. Anders continues in his commentary on Philippians to show that Paul wanted to not only thank the Christians there for their generous financial and spiritual gifts but to address some of their practical problems, as well. The commentary on Colossians shows us that they, too, were beset with false teachers who undermined the supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus.
