The Epistle of Galatians: Here We Stand

he title of our series, "Here We Stand," is a play on the iconic words that the great German reformer, Martin Luther, may not have actually spoken before the Diet of Worms: “Here I stand; I can do no other” (at least this is what some scholars hold to be true).

Upon conversion, his life became a passionate pursuit of writing, teaching, preaching, and translating the glorious truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
