  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.
  Date: Sunday, October 06, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 35 mins 56 secs    
  Description: In further response to the attack on his credentials, Paul tells the Galatians that it was God who called him into the ministry of declaring the gospel to the Gentiles. That call came when he was converted. Paul further asserted that his subsequent history demonstrated his independence from the other apostles, yet his accord with the gospel they preached.
  Date: Sunday, September 29, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 29 mins 11 secs    
  Description: In response to those who told the Galatians that Paul's gospel was defective and incomplete because he didn't get it from the right source, Paul states that his gospel came from a direct revelation from Jesus Christ. It did not come from another human being nor was he taught it. Therefore no corruption nor error had slipped in. The Galatians could have complete confidence in the message Paul had delivered to them.
  Date: Sunday, September 22, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 42 mins 35 secs    
  Description: Paul begins the body of this letter by expressing his astonishment at the Galatians for turning to another gospel than the one Paul had preached to them. This different gospel, however, was no gospel at all, for there was only one, true gospel, the very one Paul declared. In fact, Paul declared that if he or anyone else came and preached another gospel than the one he originally preached both he and they would come under God's curse. The Galatians needed this dose of truth to startle them to clear thinking.
  Date: Sunday, September 08, 2013       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 44 mins 5 secs    
  Description: In the opening verses of Paul's letter to the Galatians he asserts two important truths. First, he was a God-appointed apostle. Second, Jesus gave his life for our sins so we could be rescued from this present evil age. In previewing the rest of this letter we see the significance of these two statements. First, Paul's apostolic authority was being attacked by false teachers who'd made significant inroads among the Galatian churches. Second, these false teachers were mixing law-keeping and ritual observance with faith, but Jesus had already died for all our sins and rescued us from this age. There was no more to do.
