Henry Alford (1810-1871)
(Read his fascinating brief biography - Henry Alford and Phil Johnson's related comments)
The New Testament for English Readers
Galatians Commentary
Recommended

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament...though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (see his comments in following entry on Alford).

Editorial Note: If you are not proficient in Greek, you will find this work considerably more useful than the following work by Alford, because in this volume he translates the Greek and Latin into English. While the "The Greek New Testament" is longer (e.g., English version of 1John = 66 pages compared to Greek version = 94 pages in part because the latter includes comments of more technical nature), the substance of the commentary is otherwise similar to that found in the "NT for English Readers".

Henry Alford
The Greek New Testament
Galatians Commentary
Recommended

James Rosscup writes that "This was the great work in the life of the versatile Dean of Canterbury. An outcome of this production was the New Testament for English Readers (4 vols.). Alford was a Calvinist, conservative and premillennial, though not dispensational. He takes a literal interpretation of the thousand years in Rev. 20 and has a famous quote there, is strong on sovereign election as in Ro 8:29, 30 and 1Pe 1:2, but, unfortunately, holds to baptismal regeneration in such texts as Titus 3:5 and John 3:5. He shows a great knowledge of the Greek text and faces problems of both a doctrinal and textual nature." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

John Piper writes ""When I’m stumped with a...grammatical or syntactical or logical [question] in Paul, I go to Henry Alford. Henry Alford...comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon writes that this text "is an invaluable aid to the critical study of the text of the New Testament. You will find in it the ripened results of a matured scholarship, the harvesting of a judgment, generally highly impartial, always worthy of respect, which has gleaned from the most important fields of Biblical research, both modern and ancient, at home and abroad. You will not look here for any spirituality of thought or tenderness of feeling; you will find the learned Dean does not forget to do full justice to his own views, and is quite able to express himself vigorously against his opponents; but for what it professes to be, it is an exceedingly able and successful work. The later issues are by far the most desirable, as the author has considerably revised the work in the fourth edition. What I have said of his Greek Testament applies equally to Alford’s New Testament for English Readers,* which is also a standard work." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

William Barclay
Commentary  on Galatians
Daily Study Bible

Comment: Barclay often has rich insights on Greek words and/or historical background. However, be aware that he does hold some unorthodox beliefs, so be a Berean (Acts 17:11) and use this resource wisely.

Albert Barnes
Commentary  on Galatians

James Rosscup writes that Barnes "includes 16 volumes on the Old Testament, 11 on the New Testament. The New Testament part of this old work was first published in 1832–1851. Various authors contributed. It is evangelical and amillennial...Often the explanations of verses are very worthwhile." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

C H Spurgeon "Albert Barnes is a learned and able divine, but his productions are unequal in value, the gospels are of comparatively little worth, but his other comments are extremely useful for Sunday-school teachers and persons with a narrow range of reading, endowed with enough good sense to discriminate between good and evil....Placed by the side of the great masters, Barnes is a lesser light, but taking his work for what it is and professes to be, no minister can afford to be without it, and this is no small praise for works which were only intended for Sunday-school teachers." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Johann A Bengel
Commentary on Galatians
Gnomon of the New Testament
Index to Mt-Rev Chapter by Chapter

James Rosscup writes "This work (Gnomon), originally issued in 1742, has considerable comment on the Greek, flavoring the effort with judicious details about the spiritual life. It has much that helps, but has been surpassed by many other commentaries since its day." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

The Critical English Testament

Short Pithy Comments
Index to Mt-Rev Chapter by Chapter

Charles Haddon Spurgeon -- "'A Critical New Testament, so compiled as to enable a reader, unacquainted with Greek, to ascertain the exact English force and meaning of the language of the New Testament, and to appreciate the latest results of modern criticism.' Such is the professed aim of this commentary, and the compilers have very fairly carried out their intentions. The whole of Bengel’s Gnomon is bodily transferred into the work, and as one hundred and twenty years have elapsed since the first issue of that book, it may be supposed that much has since been added to the wealth of Scripture exposition; the substance of this has been incorporated in brackets, so as to bring it down to the present advanced state of knowledge. We strongly advise the purchase of this book, as it is multum in parvo, and will well repay an attentive perusal. Tischendorf and Alford have contributed largely, with other German and English critics, to make this one of the most lucid and concise commentaries on the text and teachings of the New Testament" (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

John Brown
Galatians Commentary
An Exposition of the Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Galatians
1853
Note: At the top of every other page one can usually discern which specific verse is being exposited.

C H Spurgeon writes that "Brown is a modern Puritan. All his expositions are of the utmost value. The volume on Galatians is one of the scarcest books in the market.." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

This work belongs to the same class with the others from the pen of the same author, which we have had repeated occasion to notice, and which taken together, already form a contribution to our exegetical literature, such as, whether in extent or importance, no other writer of our age has furnished.—Journal of Sacred Literature

It is a remarkable instance of a difficult theme made plain, and of a dry one made interesting. It would be easy to quote passage upon passage in support of this commendatory notice of this invaluable work. For us even to praise Dr. Brown as an expositor of Scripture we feel to be verging on presumption, and all we can desire for the readers of his book is some measure of the gratitude and admiration which its perusal has excited in ourselves.—United Presbyterian Magazine

C H Spurgeon writes that "This is a most careful attempt to ascertain the meaning of the Apostle by a painstaking analysis of his words. The author is not warped by any system of theology, but yet he does not deviate from recognized evangelical truth. As a piece of honest grammatical exegesis the value of this commentary is very great, though there is room to differ from it here and there." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

Rosscup - Based on the Greek text, this commentary grapples with problems in an energetic fashion, presenting various views and coming to conclusions. It is voluminous (480 pages).

If the Christian faith is true -- and it is, blessedly true -- the importance of a correct understanding of Christian truth and of the nature of the life produced by it cannot be over-emphasized. Human destiny is at stake. Yet the popular misconception of the Christian life, everywhere prevalent in Christendom, both inside the Church and out, and that in a day of boasted intelligence and learning, is nothing short of tragic. It is both baffling and alarming. Yet, in a sense, the fact that the essential character of Christian truth should be so far beyond popular comprehension is a tribute to our Faith. To our mind, as a result of wide observation, the most serious error of our day is the popular notion that the Christian life is a matter of CONDUCT. Do certain things; don't do certain things, and you are a Christian! This confining of Christian living to behaviour is altogether shallow, superficial, and above all else FUTILE. What is a Christian? The answer runs somewhat thus: A Christian is one who accepts CHRIST, especially as the teacher of a way of life; he adopts a set of habits, such as church attendance, Bible reading, prayer; he associates with other "Christian" people; he doesn't lie, steal, or get drunk; he is fair in his dealings with his fellowmen; he can be counted on to take a "Christian" attitude toward the questions of the day. A "Christian" is one who conforms to certain standards! And essential change in the PERSON, productive of such conduct, is ignored. This is GALATIANISM in its modern, most common form. It is this against which the Apostle Paul contended with passionate conviction that it was fatal to the Christian system of truth and experience.

THE DISTINGUISHING MARKS OF A TRUE CHRISTIAN

Turning to the Epistle to the Galatians we find the Apostle Paul defining and describing a Christian in such terms as these:
1 A Christian is one who has the living CHRIST living in him. (See Gal 2:20; 4:19). He has had a transforming experience.
2 A Christian is one who has the HOLY SPIRIT (Gal 4:6). He begets in the believer new characteristics that are productive of Christian conduct (Gal 5:22, 23).
3 A Christian is one who has shared the Cross experience with Christ, as the basic solution of his personal problems. (see Gal 2:20; 5:24; 6:14, 17).
4 A Christian is one possessed of a life so divine, so ideal that it cannot be pressed into a mould of external regulations (See Gal 4:9, 10, 11, 19, 20, 21; 5:1-6)

In other words, the Christian life consists not in BEHAVING but in BEING, a life out of which behaviour naturally proceeds; not something external, but internal, the root producing the fruit. It is a LIFE that must be free to express itself; to impose regulations upon it is fatal to it. Man in his natural state soon finds he is like the woody growth of the grape vine; running to wood, the real life is choked out. He has nothing but the external form, an empty shell of respectability...Paul is contending against a twofold error. (1) First, that our salvation is secured partly by faith in CHRIST and partly by good works prescribed by the law. (2) Second, that our perfecting in this life in CHRIST is a matter of self-effort on our part in obedience to the law. Thus Paul sees at stake the two essentials of the Christian faith, SALVATION and SANCTIFICATION, and sets about zealously to safeguard them for all time. The difficulty with the above errors is that they leave us impotently on Our Side, in struggle and failure. They are powerless to transfer us to the abounding resources of His Side. (

J B Lightfoot
Commentary on Galatians

James Rosscup writes that "Lightfoot is highly-regarded for his work on the Greek text, top notch exegesis verse by verse, special notes on key problems, giving of views and reasons, etc. He was rarely gifted, and his commentaries rich with assistance to pastors and students." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

Spurgeon- The Spectator says: “There is no commentator at once of sounder judgment, and more liberal, than Dr. Lightfoot.”

Martin Luther
Commentary on Galatians

James Rosscup writes that "Much of the heart-pulse of Luther’s stand for justification by faith appears here, as he distinguishes between the rigors of keeping the law in a false bid to gain standing and the freedom God gives through grace, leading to a new life-style of fruit in grace." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

John Bunyan (Pilgrim's Progress) wrote "I prefer this book of Martin Luther’s (except the Bible) before all the books that I have ever seen, as most fit for a wounded conscience."

C H Spurgeon wrote that "This is a great historic work, and is beyond criticism, on account of its great usefulness. As a comment its accuracy might be questioned; but for emphatic utterances and clear statements of the great doctrine of the Epistle it remains altogether by itself, and must be judged per se.

Notes Critical and Explanatory on Paul's Epistle to the Galatians for the Use of Students and Pastors
Greek intensive, therefore some knowledge of Greek is necessary to use these verse-by-verse comments. Somewhat dry, didactic and critical. - Not my first choice.

Rosscup - This is one of the most detailed critical works available and is very helpful in the Greek text, though liberal. Many regard it as the best technical commentary on the book, others say Betz.

The Epistle of St. Paul to the Galatians Explained and Illustrated

Written in a singularly clear and easy style, while at the same time marked by sound scholarship and a fine appreciation of the Apostle's spirit, it is admirably adapted to the 'beginners' for whom it is primarily intended, and by no means undeserving of the notice of the more advanced student.—The Academy and Literature
Professor Drummond's words are refreshing.—The New World
The explanations and illustrations are clear, brief, and always to the point.—Critical Review
The Principal of Manchester College does well whatever he undertakes.—Expository Times

Galatians Commentary Noel Due

Commentary on the Greek Text of the Epistle of Paul to the Galatians - click for index to individual chapters

Recommended: One has to "sift" through his prolific comments but there is "gold in those hills" as the prospectors say!
Rosscup - Based on the Greek text, this commentary grapples with problems in an energetic fashion, presenting various views and coming to conclusions. It is voluminous (480 pages).
Spurgeon - This is a most careful attempt to ascertain the meaning of the Apostle by a painstaking analysis of his words. The author is not warped by any system of theology, but yet he does not deviate from recognized evangelical truth. As a piece of honest grammatical exegesis the value of this commentary is very great, though there is room to differ from it here and there.

Galatians -Notes and Reflections on the Epistle to the Galatians
The exposition given is lucid, evangelical, and judicious, while the spirit in which the hortatory portions are written may be gathered from the following sentence: 'Let us judge this matter soberly and wisely, and with an especial reference to ourselves, remembering that human failure of any kind is but our own portrait in another light.'—The Christian

Galatians commentary - Brief Commentary Charles Stanley

Galatians commentary - Short Exposition (Alternative source)
Each chapter is in the first place analyzed and paraphrased, and then commented upon verse by verse, with constant reference to the original Greek, and with sufficient introduction of Greek words to serve as a help to those who only have a moderate acquaintance with the language. The paraphrases are excellent, and are in themselves valuable commentaries upon the separate chapters.—Bibliotheca Sacra

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
R A Torrey - Galatians

Note: The best commentary on Scripture is Scripture (Compare Scripture with Scripture) and these cross references compiled by Torrey are the most comprehensive work of this type with over 500,000 entries. However, always check the context (Keep Context King) to make sure that the cross reference is referring to the same subject as the original Scripture. The Puritan writer Thomas Watson said it this way - "The Scripture is to be its own interpreter or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture." See an example of the value of comparing Scripture with Scripture. See also Use of Cross-References

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click for 3 part overview of Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (He 5:14-note).

 

Note that a number of the commentaries on Galatians unfortunately equate the "Israel of God" in Gal 6:16 with the "church", a view which this writer does not espouse. These commentaries are listed because they are otherwise orthodox and sound doctrinally. See onsite discussion of Galatians 6:16 - The Israel of God
