This commentary on Galatians shows the uniqueness of Paul’s Apostleship and his gospel. Dr. Blue proves that salvation could never be attained by the works of the Law, and that men were declared righteous by faith long before there was a Jewish nation, the Law or the temple.
The book of Galatians is the most helpful book in the Bible concerning the freeness of our salvation and our liberty in Christ. Every religion on earth, except Biblical Christianity, teaches that works are necessary for eternal life. Galatians was written to correct that very error. Dr. Ken Blue shows from Paul’s letter that salvation was a free gift hundreds of years before there ever was a Jewish nation or the Ten Commandments. The reader will see that all believers are free from the Law and are to walk in the perfect law of liberty in Christ.
The Law was given to reveal the true condition of the human heart. It was not given as a means of salvation. When Jesus Christ died, the Law was nailed to the cross with Him and its demands were fulfilled. All who accept the death; burial and resurrection of Christ for their sins are forever delivered from the curse of the Law and are made FREE in Christ. Paul admonishes the Galatians and all believers to “stand fast” in that liberty and not return to the bondage of the Law.
Every believer should read this book; especially new Christians!
