Galatians 3:4 Parallel
Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

3:4 Have ye suffered - Both from the zealous Jews and from the heathens. So many things - For adhering to the gospel.

The Work of the Holy Spirit
This evening, however, I shall run away from my text somewhat.

The Critical Reconstruction of the History of the Apostolic Age.
"Die Botschaft hör' ich wohl, allein mir fehlt der Glaube." (Goethe.) Never before in the history of the church has the origin of Christianity, with its original documents, been so thoroughly examined from standpoints entirely opposite as in the present generation.
