First of all, I hope that everyone was safe during hurricane Dorian. I am grateful that the storm wasn’t that bad in Virginia Beach.

This week we will continue our series on Paul’s letter to the Galatians.

We’ve been talking about the “weird ways of God”. Now we will talk about the weird ways of men.

Paul uses a story from the Old Testament to continue his theological defense of grace versus law. He actually preaches a mini-sermon in the midst of this letter to the Galatians. We will look at what he says, but also, explore the original text to which he is referring. It is the story of Hagar and Sarah– and to understand Paul’s point, we need to be familiar with that story.

 

To prepare, read  Galatians 4:21-31, Genesis 16:1-15, and Genesis 21:1-21.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
