Today we finish this chapter of Galatians with a discussion of the right understanding of the greek word “paidagogos”, translated as “guardian”, and how it informs our understanding of what the law did and did not provide, before saving faith. Pastor Kenny explains the significance of the unification of Jew/Greek, slave/free, and male/female, and how we should act in light of this unity with Christ and others.
In this message, we discuss the covenants of God, especially the Abrahamic and New covenants. Pastor Kenny leads us in examining the special one-sided nature of the promises God made to Abraham and how those promises are fulfilled, not in the law, but in Christ’s sacrificial establishment of the New Covenant.
In this message of our Galatians series, Pastor Kenny returns with a teaching on Paul’s admonishment of the Jewish Christians who, though believers, continued to place themselves under the “curse of the law” rather than the unearned gift of Christ’s sacrificial redemption.
Welcome to our Galatians series, continued today by Philip Merki. In this message, Phil outlines Paul’s continued battle against the influences of the Judaizers and the “circumcision group”, explaining how Paul adopted certain Gentile practices in order to reach them and encouraged his fellow Jews not to allow adherence to the Law to divide the Church.
In this message, speaker Jim Steffens continues our Galatians series, discussing Paul’s mission of reaching the Gentiles and his reason for writing the book of Galatians. Jim challenges us with a restatement of Paul’s message, “Salvation does not come from following the Rules (the Law).”
