Galatians, Part 2

Galatians 2:1-21

As we continue in our study of the Epistle to the Galatian churches, let me remind you of how the book naturally breaks down for study. Chapters 1 & 2 are personal in nature, and deal with Paul's authority. Chapters 3 & 4 are doctrinal, and deal with the doctrine of justification by faith. The final two chapters are practical in nature, and deal with the application of the doctrine of justification.

In the first chapter, Paul proved that his Gospel and apostleship came directly from Christ, independent of the Twelve. In this second chapter Paul answers the question of what his relationship was with the Twelve and the Jerusalem church.

I. Personal: Paul's Authority. 1:1- 2:21 (cont.)

Conclusion: In the next two chapters Paul builds upon this introduction and teaches the Galatian believers the doctrine of justification.
