In Conclusion

Posted by on Oct 5, 2019 in Teachings

When we began studying this letter of Sha’ul to the congregations in southern Galatia we talked about how there was none of the normal giving of thanks or thinking of something nice to say to the audience. Sha’ul concludes his letter in basically the same way, without passing along any greetings, without expressing any joy, […]

Bearing Burdens

We start by reminding ourselves of Sha’ul’s central argument from Chapter (2:16). “Yet we know that a person is set right not by deeds based on Torah, but rather through … [the faithfulness of Messiah Yeshua]. So even we have put our trust in Messiah Yeshua, in order that we might be set right based […]

Freedom

Up to this point in the letter, Sha’ul has focused on the dangers of legalism through both the admonition and the appeal. Now, Sha’ul brings in the balance and counters libertinism. We remind ourselves of Sha’ul’s central argument from Chapter (2:16). “Yet we know that a person is set right not by deeds based on […]

Appeal & Allegory

Last time we closed out the first major section of admonition and today we begin the second section, an appeal to action. This appeal will be against both Legalism and Libertinism, and to begin we will remind ourselves of Sha’ul’s central argument.  (2:16) “Yet we know that a person is set right not by deeds […]

Transition from Admonition to Appeal

Posted by on Oct 5, 2019 in Teachings, Video

One of the ways that we can understand the Letters in the New Covenant is by looking at the ways that arguments were structured in Sha’ul’s day.[i] The first section of this letter after the introduction (between 1:6 to 4:11) has been an admonition to the congregations in Galatia. Up to this point Sha’ul has […]

Adopted Sons and Daughters

As we continue the discussion of being the difference between slaves and adopted sons and daughters of God let’s remember Chapter 2:16: “Yet we know that a person is set right not by deeds based on Torah, but rather through … [the faithfulness of Messiah Yeshua]. So even we have put our trust in Messiah […]

Slaves or Sons?

Deeds or Trusting Faithfulness?

As we move forward through this letter, we should keep in mind Chapter 2:16: “Yet we know that a person is set right not by deeds based on Torah, but rather through … [the faithfulness of Messiah Yeshua]. So even we have put our trust in Messiah Yeshua, in order that we might be set […]

Confrontations

Paul has been establishing his authority and the legitimacy of the Good News that he first preached. We now get to a story that demonstrates the point that Sha’ul is making, and the most important section of the letter.[i] At first, I did not realise how important this section was, until I was into the […]

Paul’s Past (How to Tailor our Testimony)

Posted by on Aug 27, 2019 in Teachings, Video

The Letter to the Galatians provides more of Sha’ul’s past than any other letter he writes, and there are some very important reasons why. This section also contains the thesis statement, and we will see Sha’ul tailor his story, his Testimony, to emphasise his thesis. Sha’ul’s Testimony [Read Gal. 1:11-2:10][i] (Vs. 11-12) The first two […]
