People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:27


Ga 3:27 For. He now shows how their faith acted to bring them into Christ. As Dr. Schaff says, "Faith always implies surrender". Faith leads to obedience. The believer is baptized into Christ, and being found in him has put on Christ. Being in Christ, a member of his body, a part of the Son, the believer becomes a child of God. Compare Ro 6:3 1Co 10:2 Mt 28:19. Schaff, in loco, says: ``The baptized is surrounded by Christ and covered by his merits. . . . The figure of putting on Christ as a new dress afterwards gave rise to the custom of wearing white baptismal garments.''

Discussion for Galatians 3

    Brian; NO! Jesus does NOT identify Himself as all three persons! You yourself read and write out the Scriptures; but twist them out of context to fit a false teaching! But there is a vast number of misguided and deceived; just as the Lord said there would be. If the another gospel can take you off on something so strange; it goes together that the same folks don't get freed from their sins either.
  • A disciple
    Very interesting group of Scriptures, Steve! There is where men are defiled, and defiled means unclean and so unfit for the presence of God...and that in the very thing men without understanding hope to find acceptance of God! One who is offended in Christ, yet tries to come by his own way instead! Not waiting for the revelation of knowledge from God, but guessing out of one's own darkened mind.

    John 14:26 "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, WHOM THE FATHER WILL SEND..." John 16:7 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth....if I depart, I WILL SEND him unto you." Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, THERE AM I in the midst of them." JESUS CHRIST plainly identifies HIMSELF as all 3 manifestations. Go ahead

    John 10:30 "I and my Father are one." Let's say Bob climbs inside a costume to play a character named Joe. On the outside we see Joe, inside it is invisible Bob. There are not now 2 of them. The INVISIBLE God PUT ON FLESH in the form of Jesus Christ that did not make 2 Gods. John 1:14 And the Word WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us.." Jesus Christ is the flesh God put on. They r ONE
