Our Hope

"The old hymn by Edward Mote (1797-1874) claims that 'our hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' blood and righteousness.' But our hope is also built on nothing more than Jesus' blood and righteousness." --Phil Ryken, Galatians Commentary, p.46.
This is the issue in Galatians. Jesus plus. Paul trenchant response shows us that Jesus plus is not Jesus at all. The gospel+ is no gospel.
