Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.”
Galatians 3:19-20 The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. 20 A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one.
So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God's curse!
The chronological list of the writings of the New Testament books is probably right in as far as the ones listed relate to each other.
According to Biblical Scholars, Galatians is older than Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
The word, Gospel, is one of the most debated in New Testament biblical studies.
So how was The Letter to Galatians preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ?
What we think of as the Law, otherwise known as the Torah, or in Greek, the Pentateuch, most people do not realize, is not the oldest part of the Bible, but could actually be very new, being virtually unknown in all the rest of the Old Testament, and even in the intertestamental writings.
- The "Law" is slavery but through Christ we have freedom and live through Faith
[The chronological list of the writings of the New Testament books is probably right in as far as the ones listed relate to each other.
I would add Revelation as the earliest though.

( The Law doesn't matter, because we are justified by Faith through God's Holy Spirit within US which acts through Love)
I think there is, but it just isn't called that.
Then why is there no writings of anyone mentioning "The Book of Revelation" at an earlier date than those mentioning Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John?
Obviously the Torah was in existence before Christ.
Then how did Jesus know about "Moses" and how were the people in the New Testament able to quote things from The Old Testament if The Old Testament is newer than the New Testament?
