Major Themes in the Book of Galatians (Ch. 1 Part 2)

06 May

I am looking forward to teaching the book of Galatians at the Word of Life Korea June 7-16. Please pray for me as I prepare my notes.

What are the major themes of this outstanding epistle? There is no substitute for reading and re-reading a book of the Bible to understand its primary emphases. Let’s continue to think about chapter one.

We’ve thought about this first theme of one’s calling (v. 1).

A second theme that jumps out in chapter one is the atoning work of the Lord Jesus.  Notice in verse 4- “. . . who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age.”

Do you feel rescued?  The substitutionary salvation work of the Lord Jesus is a primary theme in this epistle (as we will see).  This is the gospel — and it’s worth fighting for!
Rescued people are grateful people.  How might you and I express our gratitude to the Lord, our Great Rescuer, today?
