Paul’s Vital Defense of His Apostleship

Sunday, August 4th 2019  |  Galatians 1:10-24

In this part of the Galatian letter, launches into a defense of the gospel of God’s grace, by defending the fact that he has been given direct, divine revelation, an entire systematic corpus of knowledge and doctrine, personally, by the living and resurrected Jesus Christ. This makes him a fully qualified Apostle! That is, one sent by the Lord Jesus Christ as an ambassador with the full authority to declare war or make peace with sinful man through the gospel, the good news, that the rightly offended monarch has died, buried and was raised on behalf of treasonous rebels, so that they might by relieved of their pending execution and truly reconciled in love to the Living God. No other so called “gospel” will do!
