The Galatian Christians were in a difficult spot. Paul had told them one thing about Christ. Now other Christian teachers were telling them something different. They claimed to represent the views of the apostles in Jerusalem. Paul insisted that he was authorized directly by Jesus. The Galatians were new Christians, yet already they had to sort through complex issues in a profound theological controversy. Learn about Paul's explanation of true freedom and his instructions which are as on target for us as they were for his Galatian converts. Six sessions for groups or individuals with Bible text included also include questions and readings from "Saints" past and present.
