We continue our series about what is stated concerning Jesus in the various books of the New Testament. Today, we will examine the book of Galatians.
Gal 1:1 – “By Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised him from the dead.” – Two people – the superior, God, resurrects the lesser one, Jesus, from the dead.
Gal 1:3 – “From God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Two people.
Gal 1:4 – “…who gave himself for our sins… according to the will of our God and Father.” – Jesus’ willing sacrificial death was according to his Father’s will.”
Gal 1:6 – “Turning away from Him (God) who called you by the grace of Christ.” – Two people, God, superior, does the calling.
Gal 1:15-16 – “God… set me apart… to reveal His Son in me.” – God reveals His Son Jesus by using Paul.
Gal 3:16-18 – “To your seed, who is Christ… God granted it to Abraham through the promise.” – God gave Abraham the promise that through his seed (Christ), all nations will be blessed. Impossible for God and the seed to be the same.
Gal 3:21-22 – “God’s promises… the promise by faith in Jesus Christ.” – God’s promises are available to people who have faith in Jesus Christ. God is the giver; Jesus is the object. Obviously, they are different.
Gal 3:26 – “You are all sons of God through faith in Jesus Christ.” – Christians become sons of God by faith in Jesus Christ. They are never referred to as sons of Jesus.
Gal 4:4 – “God sent his Son.” – Greater sends the lesser.
