Sometimes reading the Bible is like stepping into a different world. And sometimes the issues we face turn out to be not so different from those that early Christians dealt with. That just so happens to be the case with the recipients of two of Paul’s letters, Galatians and Romans…

First up, Galatians. The church there was in for a rude surprise when some individuals showed up with a new list of requirements for membership in the church.

Today we'll read pages 155-163 from Galatians.

Covenant Connection: We Read the Bible Rigorously


Taken from the Covenant resource, “Exploring God’s Word” written by Nancy Gordon and adapted by Steve Burger.

We read Scripture rigorously. We recognize these writings for what they are in their original historical and cultural contexts. We realize that there is a distance between us and the first readers of Scripture. It was not originally written to us, but the Bible’s words are for us and about us. God speaks to us through these words. We see ourselves mirrored in its pages. The biblical books were written to people long ago. They are nonetheless relevant and authoritative, even though our world is quite different from the world of the Bible (1 Corinthians 10:11).
