    To Paul, the gospel was a miracle he had experienced. The gospel is “the power of God to salvation,” and it brings freedom. Christ died “that He might deliver us.” When Paul trusted Christ, the shackles of sin and legalistic religion were broken!

    The Judaizers, who were a legalistic Jewish party, tried to combine Christ’s message of salvation within the context of the Mosaic Law. Immature Christians believed their distorted teachings, which demanded more than justification by faith alone.

     | 1,874 views

    It looks as if they may have chastised the apostle for being a persecutor of the church before his conversion, when nothing of that nature could be said of the Twelve and therefore he was not to be considered on a level with them.
