Questions

(Gal 1:6-7 ESV) 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel — 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.

2. What does it mean to be “called” in this context? We often speak of being called to a particular ministry or place in life, but what is “called” referring to here? Do you see any parallels with Isaiah 51:2?

3. What is the “gospel”? See Gal 2:15-16. Compare Isa 52:7; 1 Cor 15:1-8; and Rom 1:1-6.
