4 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave or free man, there is neither male or female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:27,28

5 Peter: Identity crisis Daniel: Identity confirmed Jesus: Identity complete

6 Identity Crisis Galatians chapter 2 highlights an identity crisis that the church was facing. “What do we do with the Law and all these Gentiles?”

7 Identity Crisis In Galatians 2:1-10 Paul goes to Jerusalem to explain his work. As Peter was given to minister to the Jews Paul was called to work with the Gentiles.

8 Identity Crisis In Galatians 2:11-14 Peter comes to Antioch and the crisis is exposed.

9 Identity Crisis But when Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For prior to the coming of certain men from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to withdraw and hold himself aloof, fearing the party of the circumcision. The rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, with the result that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy.

10 Identity Crisis But when I saw that they were not straight forward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas in the presence of all, “If you, being a Jew, live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how is it that you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?” Galatians 2:11-14

11 Identity Crisis But when I saw that they were not straight forward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas in the presence of all, “If you, being a Jew, live like the Gentiles and not like the Jews, how is it that you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?” Galatians 2:11-14

12 Identity Crisis Acts 15:6-11 The apostles and the elders came together to look into this matter. After there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to them, “Brethren, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe. And God, who knows the heart, testified to them giving them the Holy Spirit

13 Identity Crisis Just as He also did to us; and He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith. Now therefore why do you put God to the test by placing upon the neck of the disciples a yoke which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are.”
