Overview and Objectives

Lesson Overview

This lesson begins your study of Paul’s epistles. A brief discussion of letter-writing in the ancient Greco-Roman world prepares us to better understand the New Testament epistles. You will then study the Galatian epistle, one of Paul’s most profound doctrinal letters.

Lesson Objectives

When you complete this lesson, you should be able to do the following:

  • Describe key elements of an epistle.
  • Explain why Paul wrote to the Galatians and how his letter conforms to that purpose.
  • Explain the doctrine of grace and its benefits to Christians in Paul’s time and ours.
  • Discuss the theological significance of Galatians.
Personal Reflection

As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
How do you see legalism operating in the church today? How do you see license operating in the church today? Why are both of these extremes threats to genuine Christian living among followers of Jesus?
