Class #19: St. Paul unceasingly preached Jesus Christ as crucified for their sins, in order that faith would come to the Galatians by the hearing of the Gospel message. They had received the Spirit by the hearing of faith. They were progressing in sanctification by the hearing of faith. Both St. Paul and the Galatians had suffered at the hands of others for their profession of justification by the hearing of faith. With Galatians 3:1, St. Paul calls them “foolish” for setting aside the hearing of faith in order to cling to works of the law. The teachers who taught this falsehood had “bewitched” the Galatians.
We briefly touch upon the reason for the omission of the words “that you should not obey the truth” in Galatians 3:1 of some English translations.
