Study 5 From The Book of Galatians Is: Galatians 4:8-5:1

    1.      According to this passage, what does Christian freedom imply?
    2.      In what way is Paul’s reaction to the Galatians’ condition indicative and illustrative of pastoral concern? Do we know any similar concern for the spiritual well-being others?   
    3.      Verses 21-31.  Paul uses Gn. 16 as an allegory. In this picture, what is the position of those ‘under law’, and what, in contrast, that of believers? What is the point of Paul’s quotation of (a) Is. 54:1, and (b) Gn. 21: 10-12?

Note 4:17, 18. A reference to the new teachers, who were eager to win the favour of the Galatians believers in order to cut them off from Paul and his gospel so that they would have no-one to turn to but themselves. If these teachers had really come to do good. Paul would have raised no objection (verse 18).
