Is Jesus enough? Paul wrote to the Galatians to answer this question.
Some teachers in Galatia were implying He was not. They didn’t claim Jesus was unnecessary. But to be saved, they taught, one had to submit to certain Old Testament laws and rituals. In other words, faith + works were required for a right relationship with God.
Paul argued that salvation is unearned and undeserved. Salvation is solely by Go’d grace through His Son Jesus, and is received by faith alone.
Galatians says we are justified before God by faith. James says faith without works is dead. Paul and James were two sides of the same coin … as you will see in this fantastic study.
