Galatians

The Epistle to the Galatians is a powerful defense of the Gospel of Grace.

It is written by Paul in defense of both his apostleship and doctrine, and masterfully shows the fallacy of the false teachers; and the foolishness of those who have believed them.

 

The doctrinal content of Galatians is very similar to the doctrinal content of Romans, and like Romans, Galatians played a significant role in the Reformation of the church in the 16th century. The reformers brought the great truth of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, so powerfully expounded by Paul in Romans and Galatians, back into prominence after approximately 1200 years of obscurity.

 

Galatians is important for us today because an understanding of the grace of God is vital to a healthy and spiritually prosperous Christian life.

 

Concerning Galatians, Timothy Keller said, “The book Galatians is dynamite. It is an explosion of joy and freedom which leaves us enjoying a deep significance, security and satisfaction- the life of blessing God calls his people into.”

 

It is my prayer that through our study of Galatians, our hearts would be filled with joy and blessing as we experience a fresh outpouring of God’s grace through Jesus Christ our Lord.
