Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:6


3:6 Doubtless in confirmation of that grand doctrine, that we are justified by faith, even as Abraham was. The Apostle, both in this and in the epistle to the Romans, makes great use of the instance of Abraham: the rather, because from Abraham the Jews drew their great argument, as they do this day, both for their own continuance in Judaism, and for denying the gentiles to be the church of God. #Gen 15:6|


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:6


Ga 3:6 Even as Abraham believed God, etc. The Galatians would have to reply to the questions of Ga 3:5, "By the hearing of faith"? "Yes", says Paul, "Even as Abraham, who was accepted as righteous by faith without the law". See Ge 15:6. This passage is quoted in Ro 4:3,9,21,22 Jas 2:23.
