The Israel of God (Galatians 6:11-18)

Apr 13, 2008

Jacob was named Israel after wrestling with God. His legacy was to inherit the promised land of Canaan, and that did happen. However, there was no rest nor was there any peace that was lasting. They had a few good years, and then it was finished. The apostle Paul calls us the Israel of God […]

The Law of Christ (Galatians 6:1-10)

Mar 30, 2008

The church has been baptized into Christ, and we are not under Moses. However, the apostle Paul declares that we are now called to keep the law of Christ. What is this law? Is it the same law as we see with Moses? Is there something different? If so, what is different? If you are […]

What is Freedom? (Galatians 5:13-26)

Mar 9, 2008

What is freedom? This is a question that could spark a serious discussion in almost any group. However, how does the apostle Paul define freedom? What does it mean that we were called to freedom? How does living in the flesh take away our freedom? If you are interested in hearing the answer to these […]

Faith Working Through Love (Galatians 5:2-12)

Mar 4, 2008

Why does the apostle Paul say that it is "faith working through love" rather than "love working through faith?" Is this word order significant? What does this tell us about our Christian walk verses what the Galatian church has heard? If you are interested in hearing the answer to these questions please stay tuned as […]

Two Children and Two Covenants (Galatians 4:21-5:1)

Feb 24, 2008

Sarah laughed when she heard that she was going to have a son. The competing heir of Abraham’s house, named Ishmael, also laughed at Isaac.

My Little Children (Galatians 4:12-20)

Feb 17, 2008

The apostle Paul is offended and hurt that this church no longer follows him. Is the apostle Paul justified in this feeling? Is it possible that the apostle Paul cannot stand to share the spotlight with another teacher? Or is there something deeper that concerns him about this church? If you are interested in hearing […]

Until The Fullness of Time (Galatians 4:1-11)

Feb 14, 2008

We are very familiar with time and telling the current time. We have watches, clocks, and even atomic clocks that are self setting. However, we rarely think about the fullness of time and what would be the fullness of time. What does the apostle Paul mean by this when he says the fullness of time? […]

Is the Law Contrary to the Promise? (Galatians 3:15-22)

Jan 20, 2008

How can someone possess their inheritance, but at the same time not have their inheritance? This is what happens with Israel they are those who dwell in the land, but do not possess the land. How can this be consistent with what the Lord promised to Abraham? If you are interested in these questions please […]

Cursed is Everyone Hanged upon a Tree (Galatians 3:10-14)

Jan 13, 2008

"A hanged man is cursed by God." This is what the Lord says to Moses in Deuteronomy 21:23. The fate of being hung upon a tree testified to a transgressor of the law. The corpse of the dead executed person hung there as a reminder of the consequence of failing under Moses. When we think […]

O Foolish Galatians (Galatians 3:1-9)

Nov 25, 2007

The dark depths of hell are intimidating for anyone to consider. This is exactly what Abraham saw as he peered down the path between the dead animal carcasses in Genesis 15. Abraham knew the implications of this trail, and dreaded the command "to walk." Why would the apostle Paul appeal to this text when he […]

Does Christ Merely Live in Me? (Galatians 2:15-21)

Nov 19, 2007

The resurrection of Christ is essential for Christianity to exist. It is important for us to realize that if Christ is not bodily raised from the dead we may as well stop meeting together as a church. This is the argument of the Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 15, but what does the apostle Paul […]

Congregation or Segregation? (Galatians 2:11-14)

Nov 12, 2007

"Can an apostle err? What are the implications for Paul rebuking Peter? Should we doubt the reliability of Peter’s letters? If Peter is condemned how can he present the gospel of Christ? Why does the apostle Paul make mention of this public rebuke of Peter? Why is Peter so bad for merely meeting with the […]

Circumcised from Moses (Galatians 2:1-10)

Nov 4, 2007

"In Him you were circumcised", says the apostle Paul. If we have been circumcised in Christ what is the significance of Titus not being circumcised? Why would the apostle Paul appeal to this precedent? What is so bad about circumcision? Do Peter and Paul bring a different gospel to the circumcised and the uncircumcised? If […]

Persecutor Turned Promoter(Galatians 1:11-24)

Oct 29, 2007

Why does the apostle Paul continue to remind the church that this gospel is not from man? Why does he insist that people know that he is commissioned and called by Christ? Why does he even talk about his past life as a Pharisee compared to who he is now? Is he saying that the […]

Let Him Be Accursed (Galatians 1:6-10)

Oct 21, 2007

Why is it so provocative for Christ to state, "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing?" This is what Christ says in Luke 4 and there are Israelites who want to kill him for it. Why can Christ apply the efficacy of the message to himself, but yet the apostle Paul does not […]

Delivered Through Christ (Galatians 1:1-5)

Oct 15, 2007

Saul, Saul why are you persecuting me? Says the Glorified Christ from His heavenly enthronement to Saul of Tarsus. This moment is the turning point in Saul's life. He will no longer be the Pharisee striving to stamp out Christ, but now he has turned apostle holding forth the cross of Christ. Why is it […]
