The Circumcision Faction
Here we are! week 2, chapter 2! Jay is back from Belfast and hitting the ground running with the second installment of this year’s Galatians study. In this talk Jay discusses the second chapter of Galatians and gets into the dangers of ‘the law’ and the danger of factions. Jay discusses how God has no favorites and there is nothing wrong with asking questions. We also learn a bit more about why other disciples and apostles were casting off Paul and not accepting him–and that is because Paul accepted a shamed criminal as the Messiah. And it is because of this belief that Paul asks us to love on a higher level than what comes naturally to us. To do what is not instinctual for us. And as always, especially with this topic, we get into how Grace is Anarchy. It favors no system. It's radical and lawless. Is it the third path?
This talk was given on January 15, 2023 in Seattle, Washington.
