The scene in the letter to the Galatian church now shifts to an earlier event in the city of Antioch. This was one of the largest and most influential cities in the Roman Empire at the time, and Christianity had grown quickly. Peter visits Paul and seems to feel confident in his conviction that Jews and Gentiles, as a single community in Christ, can share everything together, even “table fellowship.” But, things change quickly when “certain men” show up. How will Peter respond? What will Paul do with this situation?
About this Series:
What does it mean to live in a way that is Truly Free as a follower of Christ? The book of Galatians is one of the earliest biblical letters, written by the apostle Paul to a church that was struggling with how to best understand the grace they had received from Christ. Not only does Paul address what the grace of Christ does for individual people, he also deals with how that grace affects how Christians interact with one another. Through this series, we will be exploring how to live, in community with each other, as Truly Free people under the lordship of Christ.
