At the heart of the book of Galatians is a contrast between human effort and God’s provision. False teachers wanted the Galatian believers to “gain salvation” by keeping the law. Paul opposed them vigorously, reminding God’s people that salvation is by grace through faith and was bought by the blood of Jesus. Because they are in Christ, believers are set free from sin and the law to walk in love and holiness through the power of the Holy Spirit at work within them.

In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg examines the errors that Paul confronted in the Galatian church and the pure Gospel that he presented instead. Although Christ’s sacrifice secured believers’ freedom, false teachers sought to sabotage that freedom by emphasizing works of the law. Paul insisted that the essence of the Gospel is Jesus plus nothing. It is union with Christ and empowerment by the Holy Spirit that leads to holiness—not the other way around.
