      Galatia was a region in north-central Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) settled by the Celtic Gauls c. BCE. The name comes from the Greek for “Gaul” which was repeated by Latin writers as Celts were offered the region by the king of neighboring Bithynia, Nicomedes I (r. BCE) and established themselves in three provinces made up of four cantons (wards) comprised of Author: Joshua J. Mark. The Epistle to the Galatians, often shortened to Galatians, is the ninth book of the New is a letter from Paul the Apostle to a number of Early Christian communities in rs have suggested that this is either the Roman province of Galatia in southern Anatolia, or a large region defined by an ethnic group of Celtic people in central Anatolia.

    THE SUBJECT CONSIDERED. The question before us is one of interpretation.

Todd Wilson examines the rationale for Paul's four references to the Law in in light of a fresh appraisal of the Galatian crisis. He contributes to the continuing debate over the relevance of this section of the letter for the rest of Galatians and for the situation in Galatia.

This now obsolete part of the law and the Old Covenant was written by the hand of Moses in a book and stored in the SIDE of the Ark of the Covenant and so was also called the “Book of the Covenant.” Exodus “ And he took the book of the covenant, and read in.

Another way that Paul mentioned was that Christ’s work is the only work that can save a person and no person’s own work can ever save them since our best efforts are like filthy rags before a holy God. The curse of the Law brought death but Christ became a curse for our sake.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangs on a tree: redeemed. Galatians For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do.

And all who depend on the Law [who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law of rituals] are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law.

The Law Redemption and Freedom in Christ Book Summary: The law, redemption and freedom in Christ examines Paul's view of the law and the redemption accomplished in Christ, especially with regard to how the latter affects the former, what the latter has for Christians vis-a-vis.

- And the Law is not a matter of faith at all but of doing, as, for example, in the scripture: 'The man who does them shall live by them.' - Now Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law's condemnation, by himself becoming a curse for us when he was crucified. The second high-level statement is ve "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law." Paul knew that he stood under a curse for all the years he had devoted to legalistic law-keeping.

He said in Philippians that from a legal standpoint he had been blameless. He excelled all his contemporaries in zeal for the law (Galatians ). The curse of the law in the letter to the Galatians --The curse of the law and the message of the agitators --The curse of the law and the Galatian converts --The fulfillment of the law and the Galatian converts --The curse of the law and the leading of the Spirit.

Sunday church goers, trying to prove that the law is a curse, quote Galatians (out of context) more than any other book.

I hope to show in this article that Paul never taught against keeping the Law of God, only against keeping it as a means to before I begin treading through this minefield (the first five chapters of Galatians), allow me to establish a few points.

Today’s passage informs us that the churches in Galatia were turning to a “different gospel” in the absence of Paul, and they needed correction (Gal.

They were abandoning the “grace of Christ,” which indicates a move to embrace something other than the gift of Jesus’ perfect righteousness as grounds for salvation.

This is the second edition of a work which first appeared in The first edition gave an interpretation of Paul's Letters to the Galatians which proceeded along the following lines: firstly, Paul's opponents at Galatia were Jewish Christians who believed that Gentiles had to accept the Law in order to be saved; secondly, that Paul first revealed his noncircumcision gospel to James, Cephas.
