Lectio Divina: Galatians 1:3-5

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.


Christ’s death saves us from this present evil age.

Nothing mentioned about being saved from God’s displeasure.  What could that mean?

  1. Being saved from God’s displeasure-? That sounds so Anselmian, Anthony!? Is that even an integral insight from the NT itself, or more from post-Augustianian hermeneutics? I dunno….
    Now I’ll be Kierkegaardian here (and genuinely Lutheran?)- we’re NEVER saved from God’s displeasure, She’s ALWAYS pissed off at us! Because we continue to sin….that’s why she constantly showers us with Grace/Love/Mercy (Rachuma)/Forgiveness, etc. cf. I guess with Romans 5:8-12, 20-21, et. al.
