Therefore, our procedure will be to examine the various Pauline writings to determine Paul's advocacy of grace and the implications of this in three areas. We will introduce our study with an examination of the background for the problem of Jewish legalism in the early church. This will include a brief appraisal of the constituency of the early church, expansion to the Gentiles, Paul's missionary labors and resultant opposition from the Judaistic party, and a brief preliminary view of Paul's effort to deal with this problem.
