Reflection Questions
  • How did the law hinder the gospel in Galatia? What are some equivalents today? How does the book of Galatians contribute toward understanding the missionary task?

  • Based on your exegetical study assigned in the Greek lesson, discuss how stoicheion applied to Judaism.

  • Based on the readings and the Epistle to the Galatians, create a theological base for the principle of contextualization.

  • Discuss the relationship between hermeneutics, contextualization, and acculturation.
