Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 1:4

_ _ gave himself — (Galatians 2:20); unto death, as an offering. Found only in this and the Pastoral Epistles. The Greek is different in Ephesians 5:25 (see on Ephesians 5:25).

_ _ for our sins — which enslaved us to the present evil world.

_ _ deliver us from thisGreek, “out of the,” etc. The Father and Son are each said to “deliver us,” etc. (Colossians 1:13): but the Son, not the Father, gave Himself for us in order to do so, and make us citizens of a better world (Philippians 3:20). The Galatians in desiring to return to legal bondage are, he implies, renouncing the deliverance which Christ wrought for us. This he more fully repeats in Galatians 3:13. “Deliver” is the very word used by the Lord as to His deliverance of Paul himself (Acts 26:17): an undesigned coincidence between Paul and Luke.

_ _ worldGreek, “age”; system or course of the world, regarded from a religious point of view. The present age opposes the “glory” (Galatians 1:5) of God, and is under the authority of the Evil One. The “ages of ages” (Greek, Galatians 1:5) are opposed to “the present evil age.”

_ _ according to the will of God and our FatherGreek, “of Him who is at once God [the sovereign Creator] and our Father” (John 6:38, John 6:39; John 10:18, end). Without merit of ours. His sovereignty as “God,” and our filial relation to Him as “OUR FATHER,” ought to keep us from blending our own legal notions (as the Galatians were doing) with His will and plan. This paves the way for his argument.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 1:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 1:4

That he might deliver us from the present evil world — From the guilt, wickedness, and misery wherein it is involved, and from its vain and foolish customs and pleasures. According to the will of God — Without any merit of ours. St. Paul begins most of his epistles with thanksgiving; but, writing to the Galatians, he alters his style, and first sets down his main proposition, That by the merits of Christ alone, giving himself for our sins, we are justified: neither does he term them, as he does others, either saints," elect," or churches of God."

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 1:4

(2) Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil (d) world, according to the will of God and our Father:

(2) The sum of the true Gospel is this, that Christ by his offering alone saves us who are chosen out of the world, by the free decree of God the Father.

(d) Out of that most corrupt state which is without Christ.
