Study Notes

Review

  • The church was about 20 years old.
  • The first missionary journey was complete.
  • Paul and Barnabas had reported “all that God had done.”
  • False teaching was having an impact in Galatia.

Introduction

  1. Author: Paul wrote to defend his apostleship because it affected the message entrusted to him to proclaim.
  2. Theme:
    • Grace: God’s unmerited favor and purposeful love.
    • Peace: “To mend” or “Put back together.”
    • Redemption: Jesus went past all the symptoms to the source of the problem: SIN.
    • Glory: While God’s redemptive plan brings good to us, it is also for His glory!

The Problem

  1. Another which is not another...
    The false teachers were promoting a “gospel” that was not good news at all. It was actually the opposite of grace.
  2. Imprecation:
    This perversion of the gospel was so bad that Paul prayed an “imprecatory prayer” over those who added to the gospel.

Conclusion

In His grace, God has not only provided a “life” to come, He has provided a “life” right now. In His grace, He will deliver us from this present evil age and from hell.

Questions for small group, family and personal reflection

  1. Why is "getting the gospel right" such a big deal?
  2. How is the gospel perverted today?
  3. How can we help correct misperceptions of the gospel in our own context?
