1 - Intro to Galatians

Why study Galatians? Apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Galatians, containing the clarion declaration of righteousness by grace through faith alone, no longer by works of the Law: “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain” (Galatians 2:21).

1 - Intro to Galatians

2 - Galatians 1:1–24:
Paul's Gospel, Defended from Perversion

"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from

him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel" (Galatians 1:6). With a verse by verse exposition of Galatians 1:1-24, Dr. Barber walks through Apostle Paul's defence of the gospel of grace from its perversion by fleshly legalists, and the false accusation that Paul's apostleship is illegitimate.

3 - Galatians 2:1–21:
Obeying the Truth of Grace

"I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain" (Galatians 2:21). With a verse by verse exposition of Galatians 2:1-21, Dr. Barber walks through Apostle Paul's defence of the revelation of the new dispensation of the mystery, of the grace of God, directly to him from Jesus, and guards Christians against attempts to pervert the gospel of grace, and our fellowship of the mystery Body of Christ, by fleshly legalists.

4 - Galatians 3:1–29:
The Faith, Not the Law

"But before the faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed . . . But after the faith is come, we are no longer under [the law]" (Gal 3:23, 25). With a verse by verse exposition of Galatians 3:1-29, Dr. Barber walks through Apostle Paul's explanation of how Christians live under the dispensation of grace alone through the faith alone, revealed to and through Paul. The dispensation of the law came to an end when the Faith was revealed.

5 - Galatians 4:1–31:
Sonship, Not Slavery

"God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ" (Gal 4:6b-7). With a verse by verse exposition of Galatians 4:1-31, Dr. Barber walks through Apostle Paul's explanation of how Christians are sons and daughters of God forever because we are IN the Son, in Jesus' mystery Body, by faith alone. We must not go back to slavery to the works of the law, but stand in this grace we've been given, and walk in the Spirit indwelling our hearts.

6 - Galatians 5:1–26:
The Power of the Spirit, Not the Works of the Flesh

"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh . . . if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law" (Gal 5:16, 18). With a verse by verse exposition of Galatians 5:1-26, Dr. Barber walks through Apostle Paul's exhortation to Christians NOT to walk in the flesh, in legalistic works, which is false righteousness, but to YIELD to the Holy Spirit who has indwelt and sealed you in Jesus, in the Mystery, since you first believed.

7 - Galatians 6:1–18:
Spiritual Christians vs Fleshly Christians

"God forbid that I should glory, save in the Cross of our LORD Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world" (Gal 6:14). With a verse by verse exposition of Galatians 6:1-18, Dr. Barber walks through Apostle Paul's exhortation to Christians to be spiritual Christians rather than fleshly Christians, sowing to the Spirit rather than to the flesh. This talk concludes this course and series on Grace, Not Law: Apostle Paul's Letter to the Galatian Christians.
