LAW AND RITUAL

STATUS OF THE LAW

Fulfillment – Law and Prophets – (In Jesus, the Law and Prophets find their fulfillment)

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)

Jurisdiction of the Law – (The jurisdiction of the Torah was only Until the “seed” arrived, Jesus)

Rescued from this Evil Age – (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?)

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)

Rudiments of the Old Era – (The new Messianic Age dawned in Jesus Christ, and therefore, calendrical rituals and other Levitical regulations belong to the old order)

RITES AND RITUALS

Circumcision – A Cutting Issue – (If believers are under the Torah’s jurisdiction then circumcision is required)

Food and Calendars – (Paul argued for tolerance within the church on food regulations and observing holy days because the “shadows” have found their fulfillment in Jesus – Romans 14:1-12)
