The Narrative Lectionary brings us to Galatians 3 this week. The video above comes from a six-week course on Galatians that I am currently teaching. You can preview and download the PowerPoint below for your own preaching, teaching, and study purposes.
The Apostle Paul is frustrated with his friends in Galatia because they are being convinced by a group of people that they must first become Jewish before they can truly follow Jesus. Paul continues his argument in chapter 3 of this letter by recounting the story of Abraham and Sarah. They were justified simply by trusting God’s promise, long before circumcision or the Law of Moses was ever part of the equation. When we trust in the faith of Jesus, then we are children of Abraham and Sarah, without the need for circumcision or the Law of Moses. This is what unifies us in the midst of our diversity.
