  Date: Sunday, December 15, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 34 mins 23 secs    
  Description: Jesus died to set us free. To rely on acts such as circumcision to try to be pleasing to God is the same as turning away from grace back to the Law and it's inevitable curse. Law and grace cannot be mixed, even a little. Instead we must rely on the Holy Spirit to produce in us what is pleasing to God and we must live in love by faith.
  Date: Sunday, December 08, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 41 mins 15 secs    
  Description: Paul issues a last personal appeal to the Galatians to reject the false teachers and gives a final scriptural warning of what they doing based on an allegory from Abraham's life.
  Date: Sunday, December 01, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 31 mins 30 secs    
  Description: Paul warns that the steps the Galatian believers were beginning to take into legalism were steps back into the very bondage they were delivered from when they became Christians.
  Date: Sunday, November 24, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 43 mins 4 secs    
  Description: Paul reminds the Galatians that they are already sons of God through faith alone. They are no longer slaves to the laws and to elemental spiritual practices and forces.
  Date: Monday, November 18, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 37 mins 30 secs    
  Description: In answer to the question, "Why did God give us the Law if not to save us?" Paul tells us that the Law was given so all could know they were sinners. Its real purpose was to lead us to put our faith in Jesus Christ as Savior.
  Date: Sunday, November 10, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 35 mins 20 secs    
  Description: Paul asserts that the true children of Abraham are those who believe as he did. Those who rely on the law to get right with God end up cursed because they do not keep the whole law.
  Date: Sunday, November 03, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 32 mins 35 secs    
  Description: Paul expresses utter astonishment at the thinking of the Galatian Christians. He asks them how they could possibly think that keeping the law could improve on all that the Holy Spirit had already done among them; that somehow the works of the flesh could improve on the work of the Spirit.
  Date: Sunday, October 27, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 34 mins 10 secs    
  Description: Paul unequivocally asserts that righteousness cannot come through the law but only through faith in Christ Jesus. Both Jews and Gentiles are saved in the same way: by believing in Christ Jesus. If a person could be saved by the law then Christ would have died for nothing.
  Date: Sunday, October 20, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 54 mins 10 secs    
  Description: As a further defense of the gospel he preached, Paul told how he confronted the Apostle Peter while he was visiting Antioch when Peter's practice became inconsistent with his beliefs. He broke fellowship with Gentile believers when some Jewish 'believers' from Jerusalem dropped in for a visit. Peter's assumed correction by Paul showed that Peter was in no way superior to Paul and did not disagree with the gospel Paul proclaimed.
  Date: Sunday, October 13, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 38 mins    
  Description: Paul relates a visit to Jerusalem, the place the false teachers came from and apparently claimed that their message of circumcision and law-keeping came from. During that visit an attempt was made by some false Christians to get Titus, a Gentile believer who accompanied Paul, circumcised, an effort which Paul steadfastly resisted. The leaders of the Jerusalem church, including Peter, James, and John, affirmed Paul's gospel and his ministry to the Gentiles.
