Galatians 3: A Really Old Babysitter

Galatians 3: A Really Old Babysitter

“Paul’s letter confronts the Galatians for relying on the laws of Torah (especially circumcision) to ensure they belonged as members of God’s family. He calls this a “different Gospel” because, since the beginning, the real good news has never been about earning an entrance into God’s family. To prove this, Paul points back to Abraham as a prime example, reminding readers that Abraham never earned his right relationship with God. Instead, he believed and trusted God’s promise that one day, all nations would find God’s blessing through him and his descendants. God’s plan has always been to have a family of people who relate to him on the basis of trust, not the Law. The Law, as good as it is, does not provide the power to change—what the Law cannot do, Jesus fully accomplishes.” From theBibleProject.

Overall Theme:

In Galatians, Paul teaches us the doctrine of justification by faith and defends Christian liberty against all forms of legalism. After thoroughly defending his apostolic authority, Paul condemns false teachings about circumcision and details the freedom we have as recipients of God's grace

Key Verse:

(Galatians 3:11) Now it is clear that no one is justified before God by the law, because the righteous will live by faith.

There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28 is quite clear. There is little doubt about the point Paul is making: In Christ we are all the same — we are equal with one another.

Let’s read it together.
