People's Bible Notes for Galatians 6:17

Ga 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me. Dispute my apostolic authority. I bear in my body the marks of our Lord Jesus. He bore on his body too many evidence of what he had suffered for Christ. As slaves were often branded by their master's name, so he had the brand of Christ upon him in his scars. Compare 2Co 11:24,25.

Discussion for Galatians 6

  • James Kahora on Galatians 6:17
    Galatians 6:17. The statement by Paul: let no man trouble me I guess that is what should be explained first
  • Marvin Bronowicz on Galatians 6:17
    Hebrews 2.7 says, "Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels". Exegete's believe the usage of the word "little" means " for a little while", or simply to rephrase, "Thou hast made him for a little while lower than the angels! Jesus said "if you've seen me, you have seen the Father! God is a Spirit. No one of the flesh has ever or will never see him! Jesus Christ is the "Word" incarnate, made in the flesh. John 1. 1, and Jesus is therefore the "eternal living Word of God"!

    Most of all I believe that before he was made flesh, Jesus (the Word), counciled with the Trinity and agreed to become a sacrificial offering, a blood sacrifice (God's covenant with man has always involved a blood sacrifice for sin!

    Jesus is the image of the invisible God and for a little while , 33 1/2,years in the flesh,was a little lower than God because to satisfy Gods justice for sin, make peace between God and man and to bring us back into a right "relationship with Our Father in the Spirit, Jesus had to lower himself to be that sacrificial offering , a lamb, the lamb of God! Only God could do what Jesus the Eternal Living Word of God did! Die for the sins of the World AFTER HAVING LIVED A SINLESS 33 1/2 years in the flesh!!!

    Gal. 6:17. The mark of the Lord Jesus is the greatest thing that can happen to anyone. Paul overcame the beast in Melita Island because of the Lord's mark. I love this verse.

    Galatians 6:14

    But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

    Read Galatians 6:15-6:18.

    The Christian's glory must bear the marks of the body of Jesus Christ in the cross, in their own bodies. If we glory outside of these marks of Jesus Christ we are glorying in our own marks from the world or in the world.

    It is interesting that Paul writes in the cross instead of on the cross and it is purposeful. In the marked body of Jesus Christ is our hope and eternal life. His life was taken on a cross and his Body bore the marks of the cross yet His suffering was for our sin and our hope and our lives.

    It is in this suffering, in the cross, where we can glory because it is here that we have been freed from our bondage of sin and death.

    Jesus Christ is our beloved Savior and grace and he will bless a Christian's Spirit.

  • Aderonke Musa on Galatians 6:17
    Gal.6 17, is simply saying touch not, afflict not,and keep off, for the mark of the Lord Jesus is a coverage over me.
  • Sheyda on Galatians 6:17
    I asked The Lord what this verse meant. He said that Paul meant his physical situation but that as the Bible is a spiritual book, everlasting, all written in it must be read spiritually. He said that in our times marks of the Lord Jesus represents the suffering we undergo for them AND the Holy spirit. To be exact; as the Holy Spirit is our comforter, marks of the Lord Jesus represents the HEALED wounds of our suffering for Him. May you all be blessed and always remain in Christ. Jesus is Lord.
  • Kehinde Akintoye on Galatians 6:17
    God's seal is upon you. The King's seal authenticate and it is final. As Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, His seal upon your life makes you complete and therefore, Jesus has the final say!
