Thank you! – 56

After a little less than two months, I have finished reading and commenting on Paul’s Letter to the Galatians.  I have now finished the New Testament four canonical gospels, plus the Acts of the Apostles, and Paul’s letters to the Romans, as well 1 Corinthians and 2 Corinthians, and Galatians.  Every time I finish commenting on a book of the Bible, I send a thank you blog.  I usually post five blogs a day covering a verse of the biblical books.  So far, I have posted over 13,770 blogs about the individual paragraphs of all the 46 books of the Old Testament, plus the individual verses of the first nine books of the New Testament.  It has taken me over seven years to get this done, since I first began in 2013.

Over 4,000 people have emailed me that they are following this project in some form or another.  246 people follow this blog every day.  Many people have visited this site.  The highest recent month was October, 2020 when 1,939 people visited this site.  There have been over 76,287 hits on this blog since its inception.  I just want to thank all of you.  Word Press sent me a compilation that showed that about 6,800 people from 84 countries visited this web site in 2015.

I realize that over 37,000 of you have left comments, but I have not responded to them.  Some of you might want to moderate my comments, which is fine with me.  If you want to contact me directly, my email is efinne1540@gmail.com.

Conclusion (chapter 6)

Paul said that he was writing this with his own handwriting.  He said that the circumcised ones wanted to have the gentile Christians circumcised, to avoid not being prosecuted for the cross of Jesus Christ.  They do not even obey their own law.  They want to glory in your flesh.  However, you should only boast about the cross.  Circumcision is useless and has no value.  Only the new creation of Jesus Christ counts.

Pattern of life (chapter 5)

Paul talked about living the gospel in a new pattern of life by serving one another in love.  The Galatian Christians had been called to freedom.  They should not use this freedom to fall back into fleshy human ways.  They should simply love their neighbor as themselves.  Thus, the whole law is fulfilled in that one sentence about fraternal love.  Paul warned them not to backbite against each other so that they would not end up devouring each other.
