  • How did Paul defend his apostleship?
    By explaining his revelation of Christ, his reception by the churches, his approval by the apostles at Jerusalem, and his rebuke of Peter.
  • What did Paul think of circumcision?
    It was not a condition of salvation, and to be circumcised to be saved would discredit the gospel of grace.
  • Why did Paul rebuke Peter?
    Peter, a Jew, lived like a Gentile among the Gentiles, while hypocritically living like a Jew among the Jews.
  • List the seven arguments that Paul used to defend the doctrine of Christian liberty.
    The experience of the Galatians; the example of Abraham; the curse of the law; the work of Christ; the unchangeable promise of God; the purpose of the law; the adoption as sons.
  • Which argument do you think is best? Why?
    (Personal Answer)
  • Are Christians under the Ten Commandments? Explain.
    No! Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to all who believe. After faith comes we are no longer under the tutor, the law. The commandments were nailed to His cross.
  • What does Paul contrast with bondage, law, and the flesh?
    Liberty, grace, and the Spirit.
  • How did the Galatians receive Paul when he first preached the gospel to them?
    Like an angel or messenger of God.
  • What allegory did Paul use in his appeal to the Galatians?
    The bondwoman (Hagar) and the freewoman (Sarah).
  • What was the five-fold lot of the legalists?
    They are entangled in the yoke of bondage; Christ profits them nothing; they are obligated to keep the whole law; they are estranged from Christ; they have fallen from grace.
  • Does the Christian live apart from law? What laws, if any, are related to the Christian life?
    Christians have been saved from the law of sin and death. Laws related to the believer are the royal law (the law of love), the law of liberty, the law of faith, and the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.
  • In our study the call to Christian liberty is a three-fold call to what?
    Steadfastness, love, and walking in the Spirit.
  • How does crucifixion with Christ become practical in our lives?
    Know that we have been crucified with Him; reckon yourself to be dead to sin; yield yourself to God as being alive from the dead. (Know, reckon, yield.)
  • In our study what is the three-fold challenge of the life of Christian liberty?
    To bear burdens, to do good, and to glory in the cross.
