Galatains 6:16-18


16 Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule, even to the Israel of God. 17 Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus. 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.

  1. In Greek the word “marks” was used as the brand that identified slaves or animals to their master. Paul went through stonings beatings and illnesses that marked him as a servant of Jesus.

  2. Paul proclaims peace and mercy to those who lived by the rule in the preceding verse, that is, the fact that circumcision or uncircumcision had no effect on whether a person was saved or not, but only the newness of life characterized by a changed life. He goes on to request that noone bring these issues back up to make him reiterate them, since he has been dealing with them for this whole epistle. He states that he bears the marks of his suffering for Christ.

  3. ok getting a Jesus tattoo is not what we are talking about here—just to make sure—

    the marks that he bears, reveal his dedication to the the truth aka the gospel…
