Coming August 8th – August 25th – 3-Week Bible Study
“Paul’s Letter to the Galatians”
Before I introduce our next study, I want to quickly thank Wendy Saddler for helping me to compile the questions for the book of Galatians. Her help on this project has been an incredible blessing to me. Thank you, Wendy!
Also thank you to my daughter Madison Turner for creating the beautiful companion journal (affil link) for the book of Galatians. I absolutely love the creative way she makes my work pretty!
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
Participation is FREE…
The study is three weeks long. I’ll have a FREE study guide that you can download, as well as printable resources each week throughout the study to encourage you along. The study guide will be right here on August 4th along with a more detailed explanation of the study.

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)
