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 […]

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 […]

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.
