Project for the week of 9/18/2018

Berean's - Galatians                                                                                           
Hey guys                                                                                                           
Hope you had a good week.   So far in Galatians, we spent time understanding why Paul wrote the book of Galatians.    Read chapters 1 and 2, then ask yourself, who is Paul and where does his authority come from?  Why is he so passionate towards the Galatians?  What must the Galatians, and ultimately us, believe?   How difficult is it to see “truth”?   Where does true freedom come from?    Can you see the character of God in your answers?   How important is the Gospel? 

On Tuesday, we will start to develop an understanding of the “Law”.    The word “Law” shows up 32 times in Gal 2-6.   Conduct a word search of the word “Law” in Galatians. 
Gal 2:16 ESV













Gal 3:13 ESV
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
Gal 3:17 ESV
This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.
Gal 3:18 ESV
For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.
Gal 3:19 ESV
Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary.
Gal 3:21 ESV
Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
Gal 3:23 ESV
Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.
Gal 3:24 ESV
So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.
Gal 4:4 ESV
when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,
Gal 4:5 ESV
to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
Gal 4:21 ESV
Example of Hagar and SarahTell me, you who desire to be under the law, do you not listen to the law?
Gal 5:3 ESV
I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law.
For even those who are circumcised do not themselves keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh.
   Read through the verses containing the word  law.    What do those verses say about the law?  
We need to stop pushing the law as something that must be obeyed before people can be saved if we are doing that.
Write down a list of what the law does and doesn’t provide.
The Law Provides us with Death

The Law Provides us with something that we can get out from under
Gal 4:5 ESV

to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.




The Law Provides us with the potential to become a curse for us because Christ 

became a curse for us as it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangeth upon a 

tree
Gal 3:13 ESV
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
Gal 3:10 ESV
For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”
The Law Doesn't Provide Life

Gal 3:11 ESV
Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”
The Law Doesn't Provide right standing, justification before God as the verse says.
   Then re-read Gal 3:1-14. 

Galatians 3:1–14

By Faith, or by Works of the Law?

O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? zIt was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly aportrayed as crucified.
   
    
Let me ask you only this: bDid you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by chearing with faith?

  
    
 Are you so foolish? dHaving begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by1 the flesh? 



    
eDid you suffer2 so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?



    
 Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and fworks miracles among you do so gby works of the law, or by hearing with faith— 

   
    
just as hAbraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?

   
    
Know then that it is ithose of faith who are jthe sons of Abraham. 

   
  
And the Scripture, foreseeing that kGod would justify3 the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, l“In you shall all the nations be blessed.” 

   
    
So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

   
    The Righteous Shall Live by Faith
10 For all who rely on works of the law are munder a curse; for it is written, n“Cursed be everyone who does not oabide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” 


   
    
11 Now it is evident that pno one is justified before God by the law, for q“The righteous shall live by faith.”4 

   
    
12 But the law is not of faith, rather r“The one who does them shall live by them.” 

    
    
13 Christ sredeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, t“Cursed is everyone who is hanged uon a tree”— 

   
    




14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might vcome to the Gentiles, so that wwe might receive xthe promised Spirit5 through faith.

Greek receive the promise of the Spirit      Greek receive the promise of the Spirit

Read Rom 1:18 – For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth of unrighteousness. 
God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness
18 For kthe wrath of God lis revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
1:18 the wrath of God Refers to God’s righteous judgment upon evil. In this context, the evil in view is immorality and the suppression of the truth about God. God reveals His wrath by giving people over to their sin, thereby allowing them to morally decline even further (Rom 1:24–28). This foreshadows His final judgment (see 2 Thess 2:9–12).

Should Christians Follow Old Testament Law?

truth Elsewhere, the Greek word used here, alētheia, usually refers to the gospel (Col 1:5; 1 Tim 2:4); here, however, it refers more generally to the truth about God (Rom 1:25). Those who suppress the truth deny what is made obvious about God through creation (vv. 19–20) and do not acknowledge God as sovereign Creator.


And Rom 1:24-25 – “Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity…… 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie…..
24 Therefore sGod gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to tthe dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for ua lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, vwho is blessed forever! Amen.
1:24 God gave them over God allowed for people to do as they desired, even when it meant opposing his will for their lives. This is part of the judgment related to God’s wrath (see note on Rom 1:18). 
Paul uses the Greek word paradidōmi (often translated “gave over” or gave up”) three times in this passage (vv. 242628) to emphasize God’s deliberate response to humanity’s wicked ways: He allows people to continue to live a life of increasing sin.
immorality The Greek word used here, akatharsia, refers to illicit sexual activity (2 Cor 12:21Gal 5:19Eph 5:3).
1:25 truth of God Refers to the truth that God revealed through His creation (see note on Rom 1:18).

who is blessed for eternity A doxology meaning that God is worthy of limitless adoration and worship. It also is an example of the kind of honor and thanksgiving that people should give to Him (compare v. 21).

How does Abraham live?  By faith
Why does he live that way? The first requirement of a saved person who used to be a sinner is to change, be born again, be new, live a new way, by faith, and many say they had no other option because they were compelled by the Love of God to live this new way.  
See Gen 15:6
Genesis 15:6 And ihe believed the Lord, and jhe counted it to him as righteousness
i
Ro 4:9 Ro 4:22 Ga 3:6 Jas 2:23                      Ro 4:9 Ro 4:22 Ga 3:6 Jas 2:23  
j
Ro 4:3 Ps 106:31                                           Ro 4:3 Ps 106:31           


then read Dt 9:4-6
Deuteronomy 9:4–6
c“Do not say in your heart, after the Lord your God has thrust them out before you, ‘It is because of my righteousness that the Lord has brought me in to possess this land,’ whereas it is dbecause of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is driving them out before you.  
 eNot because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart are you going in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out from before you, and that he may confirm fthe word that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 

 “Know, therefore, that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are ga stubborn people.
c
Dt 8:17                                              c Dt 8:17

g Dt 10:16                                          g Dt 10:16c                                                                                                                                                

Where does righteousness originate? 
Once Abraham believed God and God accounted it to him as righteousness, then righteousness was born. Before was the fall and the expulsion.
What does it reflect?   A change, a new heart, a new birth, eternal life for the righteous believer
How does this fit into Galatians?

See you guys on Tuesday, as always, write down your thoughts and ideas for our discussion.  

Grace and peace to you!
Nathan

Thanks Rick for doing this. This takes our little local Bible Study International. Who knows who God might lead to it?

Thanks for the comment. I just looked at the visitor counter and noticed it is on 46. I think the men in the class are really starting to like working with it as they prepare to come to class tonight.

Contributions Welcome

The following request applies to any of the christian ministries that are currently getting visitors from my blog:

I am currently blogging: https://webmaster220.blogspot.com
I would like to place a banner on the right side of my home page that promotes your ministry
If I do that and it helps your ministry grow and expand do you have a suggestion as to what type of commission or contribution could be paid to my ministry. The reason I am saying that is there are a lot of ministries out there that are buying advertising space online and yours could be one of them for all I know. I have been an affiliate marketer for years on my blog but no commissions have ever been earned even though I am doing everything required to be done to earn the commissions. My blog readers are just not interested in spending any money on any of the goods or services discussed in my banner ads and text links. To reply, use the contact form below this paragraph Thanks, Rick Livermore - Webmaster220
