Lutherans believe the Bible is a “living word.” It continues to speak God’s word to us today, and God does not say the same thing to everyone. Bible stories often mean different things to different people. In this short series of four studies, explore some of the ways this happens and some reasons why it happens. This downloadable PDF comes with permission to reprint and use in a group setting.
Martin Luther called Paul’s letter to the Galatians “my Katie von Bora.” Paul’s conviction that we are justified (made right with God) by grace through faith in Christ is central to Luther’s theology, so it makes sense that he would think of this New Testament letter with the same intimacy and affection he felt for his wife. This four-session Bible study explores Galatians in conversation with Luther, who was a biblical scholar as well as a church reformer.

The Scripture teaches a rhythm and pace for life. There is an overarching theme in the Bible that time is in God’s hands. A life redeemed by God moves at the speed of redemption: day by day, moment by moment. This three-session study examines what we can learn from Scripture about the pace of our lives.

Most of us taking part in this Bible study will never be handpicked by God to witness to “Gentiles and kings and before the people of Israel,” as was the apostle Paul. But many of us do share something with him and the other biblical and historical people we will meet in these monthly lessons. In these nine sessions, we will meet biblical characters who find themselves transformed. We will read passages from both Old and New Testaments. And we will look especially at stories from the Acts of the Apostles and insights in Paul’s letters to the Christians at Corinth and Rome.

From beginning to end, the Bible testifies that the God who gathers is the same God who is present with us. The Gospel of Matthew adds that Jesus himself is “God with us,” and promises to be with us always, wherever two or three are gathered, even to the end of the age. Throughout nine sessions, explore some of the reasons or purposes for which we are “Gathered by God.” This downloadable PDF comes with permission to reprint and use in a group setting.
