Galatians: Key Verse

January 4, 2010 Leave a comment

The theme of this letter is summed up in 2:20.

What does Paul mean when he says, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me”?

Understand this verse and a person will understand the whole epistle.

Year 3: Overview of Galatians

January 3, 2010 Leave a comment

As it turns out, it looks like I can continue my 9-year Bible journey right on schedule.  I’m really excited about this!

It is possible that this is the earliest of Paul’s letters in the Bible.  This assumes that Paul wrote his letter to the Galatians around the time of Acts 15, about A.D. 49.

He wrote this letter to remind the church in Galatia that it is faith in Christ, not following the law, that makes a person right with God.

Timothy times twenty-nine

April 28, 2009 Leave a comment

The name Timothy appears in the Bible 29 times.

In Acts 16-20, Timothy appears seven times. In every case, his is part of a group.

There is no need to be a Lone Ranger in service to Christ. Timothy’s early service was completely as a member of a team.
