The Books of Galatians & Ephesians
21st Century Biblical Commentary
by John Witmer, Mal Couch & Ed Hindson
What is the Real Message of the Gospel?
What is the real Gospel of salvation by Jesus Christ? How does it relate to works and the Law? And what difference does that make in my life and yours? You will find the answers to these questions and more in this commentary on Galatians and Ephesians by Mal Couch, Ed Hindson and the late John Witmer.
Galatians is a book all about God and His Gospel. There were those that told the Galatians that keeping the Law would make them righteous. There are still those today who would say that the work of Christ is insufficient, that we must add something to His sacrifice, our own merits, or the merits of others. The reader will discover afresh that salvation is by Christ alone, through grace alone, and by faith alone.
Ephesians is a book about the church and believers. It echoses the teaching of Galatians in stating, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, less any man should boast.” But Ephesians lays on this foundation an understanding of the purpose of the church and the responsibility of the believer. Believers are to live in unity and imitate God by good works. The reader will learn what difference the Gospel makes in our daily lives.
In Galatians and Ephesians the reader will discern both the heart of the Apostle Paul and the heart of the New Testament Gospel. In both epistles, the reader is enveloped in the truth that salvation is by Christ alone, through grace alone, by faith alone.
