Freedom Series | Galatians
Freedom is important to us. For some, the word invokes deep feelings of patriotism. How could it not? We the people have claimed it as a birthright, we defend it when it looks to be threatened, and at times we join others in their own fight for freedom — even at great cost. But as admired as freedom is, today’s political discourse suggests that when it comes to freedom, we’re not always saying the same thing. Which creates a challenge in any community, not the least the Jesus community — a community that includes far greater diversity.
So what exactly does freedom entail in the Jesus community? The first-century letter of Paul to the Galatians speaks to this in a way that is just as relevant in this twenty-first century.
