Justification by Faith Alone
Passage: Galatians 2:15–2:21
Paul’s letter to the Galatians is mostly argument for justification by faith alone as opposed to the heresy peddled by certain Jews that Gentile Christians needed to obey the Law in addition to the justification that is provided by Christ. In the verses we cover today, Paul’s offers the most theological aspect of his argument for justification by faith alone.
