Having just taught the Galatians about the blessedness of those who receive God’s salvation by faith, Paul now deals with the situation of those who believe in salvation by works and indicates that they are under a curse. To discover Paul’s meaning, we cover:
- What happens to those who try to work their way to heaven (they are indeed under a curse)
- What God says in the Old Testament about how a person may make it to heaven (that it is by faith and not by works)
- How God has made salvation possible (by making Jesus a curse on behalf of His people).
