Paul’s Apostolic Authority Proved

Sunday, August 11th 2019  | Galatians 2:15-21

Paul continues his aggressive defense of his apostleship by Christ by showing that the mother church in Jerusalem had received him as such, and by his confrontation with a back-sliding Peter! The chapter concludes with a stark and oddly beautiful word picture about Paul’s relationship to the Law of Moses: “I died…I have been co-crucified with Christ and I no longer live.” A dead man is not under law.
