Adult Bible Class
The Adult Bible Study group of the Holy Mother of the Rosary Cathedral is a vibrant, inquisitive, challenging, yet reverent collection of your fellow parishioners. We meet every Sunday at 9:30am, between the two masses. We just finished studying the two letters St Paul wrote to the Corinthian Church. We are now going to begin the next book in the New Testament, St Paul's Letter to the Galatians.
We would love to have you join our fellowship. We use workbooks to help guide us through the study. You DO NOT need to be a Biblical scholar to feel fulfilled.
Here's some information about St Paul's Letter to the Galatians to get you interested...
> Date when St Paul wrote this letter - anywhere between 48 and 55 AD
> St Paul wrote this letter either on his first of second missionary journey
> the Galatians were people who immigrated from Gaul to Asia Minor (Modern Day Turkey)
> the Galatians were first conquered by Alexander the Great and the Greeks, then later, the Romans.
> the Romans controlled Galatia at the time the Christian churches were established and when St Paul wrote this Letter
> the Christian churches in Galatia were comprised of both Jews and Gentiles
> St Paul had to write a letter to the Galatian churches to instruct them properly on the correct teaching of Jesus and to also warn them against the teachings of the "Judaizers"
> Popular Bible verses from Galatians:
1. 3:26 - So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith
2. 5:13 - You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
3. 5:6 - For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
4. 1:11-12 - I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.
