This Little Rock Scripture Study is on two of Paul’s letters - Galatians and Romans, which are pivotal for those seeking to understand the faith and teaching of the Apostle Paul. Many of Paul's themes are shared by Galatians and Romans, but the tone and length of the two works differ sharply. 

Part I of our study focuses on Galatians because it was written first.  Galatians addresses Paul's understanding of Christian freedom and justification by faith. He reprimands the Galatians for deserting the Gospel by seeking justification through circumcision rather than through faith in Christ, who achieved our salvation by his sacrifice on the cross.

The study will resume in late August with Part II – Romans, the longest of Paul's letters. It addresses the universal reality of sin in the world and the need for salvation in Jesus Christ. It explores both the strength and limits of the Law of Moses. Paul examines the new life attained in the Holy Spirit as God's gift and proclaims the mystery of God's plan to save Israel. Romans also highlights the ethical demands of the gospel.

The Study Set ($20) includes the Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch (Galatians) and Clifford M. Yeary  (Romans) and a commentary, Galatians and Romans, by Brendan Byrne (Liturgical Press).
