Galatians (Part #10) deals with the apostle’s seemingly complex claim that “Jerusalem which is above is free which is the mother of us all.” In this sermon Paul uses both Hagar and Sarah as Old Testament allegories to represent the two covenants: one of faith the other by promise. Which is greater? How can the faithful reconcile Paul’s own statement “All Israel shall be saved” with his teachings in Galatians?
Galatians (Part #9) deals mostly with the apostle’s timeless statement; “Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” Is it forbidden under the new covenant to observe times? What is our initial consecration? In this sermon we scrutinize Paul’s teaching that legalizers wish to bring the faithful into bondage by using Yahweh’s Law and also verify it’s always proper to be a zealot for integrity.
Galatians (Part #8) continues our lengthy series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians by illustrating new heirship under Christ for every gentile nation. What does “adoption of sons” mean? What’s the difference between Israelite and Galatian? How important is belief to Jesus? This upbeat sermon explains how servants under the yoke of Old Testament Law are made sons of God through faith in our Redeemer.
Galatians (Part #7) deals with one of the hardest statements ever made by the apostle Paul; “There is neither Jew nor Greek in Christ Jesus.” How was the Mosaic Law a schoolmaster (or tutor) intended to bring us to the Messiah? The persecuted apostle proves gentiles are the descendants of Adam thus if they accept Yahshua as Messiah they become part of the everlasting promises made to Israel.
Galatians (Part #6) describes how Christ became a mediator for the Old Testament and confirms that faith is much greater than obedience to our Father. Is the Law of Yahweh no longer applicable to our Christian walks? This letter to the Gauls provides a basic overview of the Abrahamic covenant and allows Paul to clarify these “heathen” are part of the numerous nations blessed through Isaac’s elected seed.
Galatians (Part #5) explains what it means to be crucified WITH Christ and what dying to the world represents to the new seedline Christian. What are the works of the Law? Why would the aged apostle tell “heathens” they’re the children of Abraham? In this sermon Paul explains that nobody is justified by the Old Testament Law and quotes the minor prophet Habakkuk; “the just shall live by faith alone.”
Galatians (Part #4) clarifies in detail several reasons the apostle Paul withstood Peter at Antioch over fleshly disputes over the Mosaic Law. What does being “dead to the Law” mean? Is Christ the minister of sin? Paul’s account in chapter two details that Peter associated and dined with gentiles while walking with Christ and for a short time thereafter but he like many fell from the simplicity of Christ’s Word.
Galatians (Part #3) teaches that Yahweh is not a respecter of persons by covering Paul’s reasons for rebuking certain men “crept in unawares.” Which is greater? The Law or faith? How are we forgiven of sin? In this recording we discover that a source of contention amongst the early church was over the Old Testament ritual of circumcision and discover that again even Peter succumbed to “the fear of the jews.”
Galatians (Part #2) covers several of Paul’s “additions” to the book of ACTS with his explanation of his conversion and commissioning by Christ. Paul confesses he was a zealot in the “jew’s religion” and persecuted the early church but seemingly Yahweh had an alternate path for Saul of Tarsus! The apostle teaches on predestination making the claim Yahweh foreknew his becoming an ambassador to gentiles.
Galatians (Part #1) provides necessary overview on Paul’s epistle before covering the first ten verses of this letter to the gentiles in Galatia. This introductory segment makes clear Paul’s reasons for rebuking the foolish Galatians that were turned aside to an entirely different gospel and another redeemer. We’re warned by Paul if any man or angel preaches a different gospel they’re to be considered cursed.
