AT GALATIA

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)

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

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?)

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)
