The Glad Tidings – E.J Waggoner

Introduction
It is quite common, in writing upon any book in the Bible, to spend some time on an "Introduction" to the book in question--setting forth the nature of it, the circumstances under which it was written, and the probable purpose of the writer, together with many other things, partly conjectural, and partly derived from the book itself.

Introduction
It is quite common, in writing upon any book in the Bible, to spend some time on an"Introduction" to the book in question--setting forth the nature of it, the circumstancesunder which it was written, and the probable purpose of the writer, together with manyother things, partly conjectural, and partly derived from the book itself. All suchstatements the reader has to take on the authority of the one making them, since, nothaving yet studied the book, he can not judge for himself. The best way is to introducehim at once to the study of the book, and then he will, if diligent and faithful, soon learnall that it has to reveal concerning itself. We learn more of a man by talking with himthan by hearing somebody talk about him. So we will proceed at once to the study of theEpistle to the Galatians, and let it speak for itself. Nothing can take the place of the Scriptures themselves. If all would study the Bible as prayerfully and as conscientiously as they ought, giving earnest heed to every word, andreceiving it as coming directly from God, there would be no need of any other religious book. Whatever is written should be for the purpose of calling people's attention moresharply to the words of Scripture; whatever substitutes any man's opinions for the Bible,so that by it people are led to rest content without any further study of the Bible itself, isworse than useless. The reader is, therefore, most earnestly urged to study, first of all, theScripture text very diligently and carefully, so that every reference to it will be areference to a familiar acquaintance. May God grant that this little aid to the study of theWord may make every reader better acquainted with all Scripture, which is able to makehim wise unto salvation.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the Real Gospel
"PAUL, an apostle (not from men, neither through man, but through Jesus Christ, andGod the Father, who raised Him from the dead), and all the brethren which are with me,unto the churches of Galatia: Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and our LordJesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us out of this presentevil world, according to the will of our God and Father; to whom be the glory forever andever. Amen."I marvel that ye are so quickly removing from Him that called you in the grace of Christunto a different gospel; which is not another gospel; only there are some that trouble you,and would pervert the Gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach unto you any gospel other than that which we preached unto you, let him beanathema. As we have said before, so say I now again, If any man preacheth unto youany gospel other than that which ye received, let him be anathema. For am I now persuading men, or God? or am I seeking to please men? if I were still pleasing men, Ishould not be a servant of Christ."For I make known to you, brethren, as touching the Gospel which was preached by me,that it is not after man. For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but itcame to me through revelation of Jesus Christ. For ye have heard of my manner of life intime past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God,and made havoc of it; and I advanced in the Jews' religion beyond many of mine own ageamong my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me, even from my mother'swomb, and called me through His grace, to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Himamong the Gentiles; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood; neither went I upto Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went away into Arabia; andagain I returned unto Damascus."Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and tarried with himfifteen days. But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother. Nowtouching the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not. Then I cameinto the regions of Syria and Cilicia. And I was still unknown by face unto the churchesof Judea which were in Christ; but they only heard say, He that once persecuted us now preacheth the faith of which he once made havoc; and they glorified God in me."Galatians 1, R.V.
An Apostolic Salutation.
The first five verses form a greeting such as, with the exception of the first verses of the book of Romans, is not to be found elsewhere in the Bible, and, consequently, nowhereelse in the world. It contains the whole Gospel. If there were no other portion of Scriptureaccessible, this contains sufficient to save the world. If we would study this small portion
