Letters are substitutes for physical presence. Though the Apostle Paul wrote from a great distance, his letters to the churches in Galatia and Thessalonica are charged with characteristic energy and passion. They ably address very specific problems that had emerged in the new congregations of believers. While the Galatians wrestled with the relationship between Jewish law and Christian teaching, the Thessalonians were confused about when Christ would return.
