Galatians - 1

Sunday, 11 April 2021

Paul's letter to the Galations addresses a situation in church Paul's Gentile converts are being told by a new group of teachers that in order to be fully intergreted into God's covenant people they need to enter into the Mosiac covenant by circumcision. Having to defend his apostleship and message, Paul explains the origins of his theology by giving us his biography (chapters 1-2). He then gives us his theology and argues that this gospel is what creates the new, multi-ethnic family of Jesus and Abraham (chapter 3-4). Lastly, he gives us the application and shows how this gospel truely transforms people by the presence and power of the Spirit (chapters 5-6)
