GALATIANS

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 – (Galatians 1:1-5 – With the death and resurrection of Jesus, a new era dawned)

Proclaiming Another Gospel – (Galatians 1:6-12 – Abandoning the gospel of grace means apostasy and curse)

Paul’s Proposition Statement to the Galatians – (Galatians 2:15-21 – From the faith of Jesus or the works of the Torah?)

The Jurisdiction of the Law – How Long? – (Galatians 3:15-19The jurisdiction of the Torah was only Until the “seed” arrived, Jesus)

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 from the Law – (Galatians 4:1-7The 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 – (Galatians 3:10 – Anyone under the Law is obligated to keep it all)

Why, then, the Law? – (Galatians 3:19 – 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)

The True Seed of Abraham – Faith not DNA – (Jesus in the true “seed” of Abraham;  participation in the inheritance is based on faith, not descent)
