Martin Luther stated in his commentary on Galatians 1531/35, "For in my heart there rules this one doctrine, namely, faith in Christ. From it, through it, and to it all my theological thought flows and returns, day and night yet I am aware that all I have grasped of this wisdom in its height, width, and depth are a few poor and insignificant firstfruits and fragments." John Calvin affirmed in his commentary on Galatians 1546/48, "It was necessary to indicate the fountain, so that his (Paul's) readers should know that the controversy was not concerned with some insignificant trifle, but with the most important matter of all, the way we obtain salvation". Both Luther's and Calvin's thought had an indisputable importance for the 16th century, and their theology has continuing significance to many Christian denominations today. Both Luther and Calvin saw Paul's epistle to the Galatians as important and composed a commentary on it, which makes it exceptionally convenient to compare the two reformers' thought. What are the distinctive central themes for the two reformers in their respective commentaries on Galatians? Is their thought similar on key issues in their commentaries on Galatians, such as justification, the work of the Holy Spirit, law, good works and ministry? Or are there significant differences in how they understand these important doctrines of the Christian faith? This analysis and comparison of substantial concepts in Luther's 1531/35 and Calvin's 1546/48 commentaries on Galatians suggests a greater degree of agreement on the above issues between the German and the Swiss reformer than has generally been acknowledged.
