The aim of this article is to demonstrate an approach to  the rhetorical analysis of Paul's Letter to the Galatians that differs from the typical approach followed by researchers, namely the forcing of ancient rhetorical categories on the letter. Instead it is proposed that Paul’s rhetorical strategy should be analysed in terms of a grounded theoretical approach. This is demonstrated by a systematic analysis of Paul’s basic rhetorical strategy, as well as of all  the  supportive persuasive techniques in Galatians 3:15-25 (subdivided as Galatians 3:15-18 and 3:19-25).
