The Controversy at Galatia  – An Overview – (The key dispute at Galatia was over whether Gentile converts must be circumcised and keep some, at least, of the required deeds of the Torah)

Rescued from this Evil Age – (With the death and resurrection of Jesus, a new era dawned)

Even an Angel – (Paul warned the Galatians not to heed any gospel that deviated from the one preached by him – even if it came from an angel)

Paul’s Proposition Statement to the Galatians – (From the faith of Jesus or the works of the Torah?)

Having Begun in the Spirit – (The receipt of the Spirit while uncircumcised is irrefutable proof that Gentile Christians are accepted by God AS GENTILES)

The Limits of the Law – (The jurisdiction of the Mosaic regulations over the covenant community reached its limit with the arrival of Jesus, the true seed of Abraham)

The Promise of the Spirit in Galatia – (The “promise of the Spirit” is part of the “blessing of Abraham” promised to the nations, and those who receive it become the “children of Abraham” )

Redeemed and Adopted – (The Law was an interim stage; by design, it had a termination point. Christian believers are no longer “under the Law” – They are “in Christ”)

The Requirement to do the whole Law – (Anyone under the Law is obligated to keep it all)

Why, then, the Law? – (Paul addresses the question of the purpose of the Law given at Sinai)

Neither Jew nor Greek – (In Galatians, Paul concludes that with the coming of Jesus, the old social barriers are wholly inappropriate)

The Social Implications of the Law – (To return to the jurisdiction of the Mosaic Law is to re-erect the old social barriers, especially, the division between Jew and Gentile)

Weak and Beggarly Rudiments – (The Messianic Age has dawned, therefore calendrical rituals belong to the old order)

From This Evil Age – (The death of Jesus signaled the commencement of the messianic age)
