Lay Bible Institute set for Feb. 6

One-day seminar explores Galatians

UPDATED NOV. 19, 2020

Paul’s message to the Galatians is the focus of Concordia Seminary’s Feb. 6 Lay Bible Institute, “Galatians: Hearing Paul's Gospel Afresh,” led by Dr. Mark Seifrid, professor of Exegetical Theology.

Seifrid will help participants explore the relationship between “justification by faith” and Christian ethics — revealing how Paul’s message to the first century Galatians applies to Christians today.

“Paul's message to the Galatians is that their lives — Gentile lives — matter. As Christians, we should find our identity in Jesus Christ and His saving work for us,” Seifrid said. “The answer to the question, ‘Who am I?’ is found in Jesus. In finding ourselves in Jesus, we find one another, too. True Christian fellowship does not lie in what we do, but in Jesus Christ, Who has taken down all barriers and made us one.”

Open to lay people, students, pastors and others interested in the proclamation of the Gospel, the one-day workshop will be held online 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (CDT) Saturday, Feb. 6. The registration deadline is Jan. 24, 2021. Cost is $20 per person.

The Lay Bible Institute, offered three times a year by Concordia Seminary faculty members, is an ongoing study of the Bible and how it relates to today’s life and events.
