Galatians 1:4 says that the Lord Jesus Christ “gave Himself for our sins that He might rescue us out of the present evil age according to the will of our God and Father”. An age refers to a section, an aspect, the present or modern appearance, of the world as the satanic system, which is used by Satan to usurp and occupy God’s people in order to keep them away from God and His purpose (Ephesians 2:2; 1 John 2:15-16). According to the context of Galatians, the present evil age in 1:4 refers to the religious world, the religious course of the world, the Jewish religion; this is confirmed by 6:14-15, which speaks of the religious world which to the apostle Paul was crucified. The purpose of Christ’s giving Himself for our sins was to rescue us, to pluck us, to extricate us, out of the present evil age (Galatians 1:4). Christ’s death on the cross to deliver us from the present evil age was according to the will of God, which concerns Christ and the church (Colossians 1:9). (F2015 ITERO, msg. 9 outlines)
