Note: If you are thinking of picking up the journal (optional addition) from Amazon, (affil link) make sure you do that today, because our study begins THIS upcoming Tuesday.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
What you’ll find in the study guide are questions for each chapter. The questions are designed to get you thinking and to keep you focused. Some may be easy and other questions may prompt you to do a little digging, and cross referencing. All of my answers will be posted on my blog each Friday during the month of the study. I’ll also be posting Tuesday and Friday afternoons on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/timewarpwife in fact I usually try to post a video there. The resources for each week will be posted here at the blog on Tuesday mornings.
The reason it’s different this time is because we have two lessons/week instead of three as Galatians is a shorter book. I’ll be using my off time to finish up an incredible study I’m working on for the Fall. This one is taking hours and hours of research, but it’s incredibly exciting!
Galatians isn’t a long book, in fact it’s only six chapters, but it’s a powerful one, as we’re reminded that our righteousness comes through Jesus Christ.
Astonished that they have turned their heads from the truth of the gospel, Paul writes a letter to the church in Galatia both to correct them, and to strengthen them in their faith.
These “foolish Galatians” as Paul calls them, were drawn away by Jewish teachers who would have them believe that Jewish laws, such as circumcision, were necessary in order to obtain salvation, and that righteousness was not merely by faith but also by works.
Paul sets the record straight by sharing the fundamental elements of the Christian faith. Drawing a line between the works of the law and the law of faith, he points them to the only One by whom we are justified.
Comparing Sarah to Hagar, he helps them to understand the difference between those who are slaves to the law and those who have freedom in Christ.
Paul shares his testimony, giving us a glimpse into his life before his conversion, at which time he persecuted the church and tried to destroy it. He talks about his conversion, his early days in the church, and his relationship with Peter and the other apostles.
Encouraging the church to live well, Paul urges them to carry each others burdens and to do good one to another.
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” – Galatians 6:9-10

It’s simple. If you haven’t done so already, download a copy of the FREE Bible study guide–you’ll find the download further down this page.

You do not need anything else for this study other than a Bible and a pen!
In addition to the study guide, I’ve created a journal (available now at Amazon) for the study. This one is a Bible-study/journal combination with thought provoking questions, quotes from some of our favorite Bible commentators, space to jot down your thoughts, and whimsical images that help make your study time creative. In it you’ll find everything you need to complete the study.
FAQ: What’s the difference between the journal and the FREE study guide?
The journal is not only beautifully designed, it also has everything in one place so that you don’t have to download and print the questions. It also has some notations to help you understand the text. It’s designed to be a keepsake in which you can journal, and then tuck away for future reference.
It’s ideal for group study, because members can take their booklets home, answer the questions, color in the pages if they like, and bring them back each week to share their thoughts.
The journal is available now on Amazon. I’ve also provided some sample pages below so you can take a peek inside. (This post contains affiliate links)
(Please note: The journal is an optional addition. You do not require it to take part in this study, and will definitely enjoy the free resources I provide)
