Winter 2017: Galatians: Christian faith and Christian freedom
Kit Kleinhans, a professor at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, will share a four-session Reformation anniversary Bible study on “Galatians: Christian faith and Christian freedom.”
"Biblical scholars describe Paul’s letter to the Galatians as the Magna Carta of Christian freedom," Kleinhans writes. "Martin Luther called it 'my Katie von Bora.' Like his marriage to Katie, Luther’s relationship with Galatians was a rich and lasting one: over a period of 20 years, he published six commentaries on the epistle. Luther’s reformation was centered in the doctrine of justification by grace through faith for Christ’s sake, which he saw as the heart of Paul’s letter to the Christians in Galatia. It is also the heart of Paul’s–and–Luther’s message for us today."
Session 1: No other Gospel (Galatians 1:1-2:21)
Session 2: Children of God through faith (Galatians 2:19-3:29)
Session 3: Heirs of the promise (Galatians 3:24-4:31)
