    The Epistle To The Galatians

    by The Apostle Paul (With The Holy Spirit)


    16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law,
    but by the faith of Jesus Christ,
    even we have believed in Jesus Christ,
    that we might be justified by the faith of Christ,
    and not by the works of the law:
    for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

    Galatians 2:16 (KJV)


    The Epistle to the Galatians, often shortened to Galatians, is the ninth book of the New Testament. It is a letter from Paul the Apostle to a number of Early Christian communities in Galatia. Ancient Galatia was an area in the highlands of central Anatolia in modern Turkey. Galatia was named for the immigrant Gauls from Thrace, who settled here and became its ruling caste in the 3rd century ...

    Galatians stands as an eloquent and vigorous apologetic for the essential New Testament truth that people are justified by faith in Jesus Christ — by nothing less and nothing more — and that they are sanctified not by legalistic works but by the obedience that comes from faith in God's work for them, in them and through them by the grace and power of Christ and the Holy Spirit.

    It was the rediscovery of the basic message of Galatians (and Romans) that brought about the Protestant Reformation. Galatians is often referred to as "Luther's book," because Martin Luther relied so strongly on this letter in all his preaching, teaching and writing against the prevailing theology of his day. It is also referred to as the Magna Carta of Christian Liberty.
