The Man and His Message

Galatians 1:1–5  (ID: 1392)

The book of Galatians—an epistle sometimes referred to as the Magna Carta of the Christian church—gives cause for a deliberate study on the subject of Christian freedom. In this message, Alistair Begg considers to whom, by whom, and for what purpose the letter was written. The essence of the apostle Paul’s message in the introductory verses challenges us to proclaim the good news of lives rescued and transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ.

1Paul, an apostle—not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— 2and all the brothers1 who are with me,

To the churches of Galatia:

3Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
