Session 8.22 Starter
Paul penned an angry beginning to his letter to the Galatians. He was furious because the church had been following the guidance of some who expected Gentiles to first adhere to Jewish practices before they could become Christians. Some at the church believed Paul was simply trying to please the Gentiles by not requiring circumcision and other Jewish practices.
Scripture: Galatians 1:1-12
Paul an apostle—sent neither by human commission nor from human authorities, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead — and all the members of God’s family who are with me, To the churches of Galatia: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to set us free from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
