For the Yoke of the Lord is Easy and His Burden Light is written as a kind of answer to Feofan Prokopovic’s polemic disputation The Tale of the Dispute of Paul and Barnabas with the Judaizers and the Difficulty of the Oration of the Apostle Peter Concerning the Unbearable Burden of the Law. It also marks the starting point for one of the most significant theological controversies of the eighteenth century.
