The Gospel in Galatians:

The Gospel in Galatians Lesson 5 Old Testament Faith

Memory Text:

Memory Text Galatians 3:13 (ESV) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree"— What is the “curse of the Law?” (Rom 6:23) What does it mean to redeem something? What price did Christ pay for us and to whom did He pay it?

Gal 3:1-5 (NIV):

Gal 3:1-5 (NIV) 1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? 4 Have you suffered so much for nothing—if it really was for nothing? 5 Does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard?

Paul’s Preaching:

Paul’s Preaching 1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. What was central to the preaching of Paul in all the churches he established?”

Believing or Observing?:

Believing or Observing? 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? What do you think happened to the believers that marked the time at which they received the Holy Spirit?

Beginning and Ending:

Beginning and Ending 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? What is the danger of beginning with the Spirit and ending with legalism?

Gal 3:6-9 (NIV):

Gal 3:6-9 (NIV) 6 Consider Abraham: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” [ a ] 7 Understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham. 8 The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” [ b ] 9 So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. [a] Gen 15:6 [b] Gen 12:3

Man of Faith:

Man of Faith 6 Consider Abraham: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” What did Abraham do that was credited to him for righteousness? How good was Abraham’s obedience?

Gal 3:10-14 (NIV):

Gal 3:10-14 (NIV) 10 All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” [ a ] 11 Clearly no one is justified before God by the law, because, “The righteous will live by faith.” [ b ] 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, “The man who does these things will live by them.” [ c ] 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” [ d ] 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. [a] Deut 27:26 [b] Hab 2:4 [c] Lev 18:5 [d] Deut 21:23

Under a Curse:

Under a Curse 10 All who rely on observing the law are under a curse, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” How many are under the curse according to this verse?

By Faith:

By Faith 11 Clearly no one is justified before God by the law, because, “The righteous will live by faith.” How many will be in heaven because of their obedience to the law?

By Works:

By Works 12 The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, “The man who does these things will live by them.” What is the opposite or alternative to faith in verse 12? How much of the law must we obey to live by the law?

The Curse:

The Curse 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” What did Jesus do for us in order to redeem us from the curse of the law according to verse 13? Did Jesus actually feel the curse of sin when He was crucified?

Redeemed:

Redeemed 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. Why was it that Christ died to redeem us according to verse 14? What does the “promise of the Spirit” represent? (2 Cor 1:20-22)

One Gospel:

One Gospel What point do you think Paul is making by establishing righteousness by faith from Abraham and the OT scriptures? What gospel have we been commissioned to preach to all the world? (Rev 14:6

Summary:

Summary In our lesson this week, Paul continues to argue for one Gospel: righteousness by faith alone. In Gal 3:1-5 he reminds them that they received the Holy Spirit by believing and accepting Christ not by observing the law.

Summary:

Summary In Gal 3:6-9, he points to Abraham, the man of faith, to whom righteousness was imputed by faith, and all who exercise faith like Abraham are his children, whether Jew of Gentile. In Gal 3:10-14, he continues to quote scripture to prove that those who are attempting to keep the law in order to be saved are under a curse because no one can keep the law perfectly at all times.

Summary:

Summary Christ redeemed those who are under the curse of the broken law by becoming a cure for us: He took our curse and gave us His righteousness. Will you trust Christ alone and allow Him to redeem you from the curse of your sins today?
