Judeo-Christian Clarion — Paul Bible Study

Welcome to our podcast Bible Studies. You may want to just listen to the lesson, or you may want to follow along by reading the transcript, and if you want, you can print the transcript to go back and read later. Either way, we think you will enjoy it.

Paul before Felix.

Felix gives Paul an opportunity to speak in order to defend himself. Paul’s goal in his defense is to prove that he was not stirring up trouble, that being of the Nazarenes was not a danger, and that he had not desecrated the Temple. He begins refuting their claims by saying, “No more than twelve […]

Paul under fire

The last thing we are going to look at in this study is the trials of Paul. As Paul spread the good news around the known world, he experienced the joy of fellowship as well as the bitterness of persecution. We can learn a lot about Paul by examining the stories surrounding his trials and […]

Purpose of the law

Now let’s move on to another of Paul’s interesting analogies. In Galatians 3:19-26, Paul compares the Torah and Jewish status to a paidagogos, a tutor. Because of the wording in this portion of scripture, the majority of the traditional church taught that the Torah was just a guardian until Messiah came, and that once He […]

Living like the Gentiles

The next section of our study will focus on the book of Galatians. When we read this book, we must remember that even in his own day, Paul was being misunderstood  (2 Peter 3:15-16). Why did Paul write the book of Galatians, and whom was he addressing? We know that Paul was the apostle to […]

Matters of Conscience

  Another part of Romans which has been widely misunderstood is Romans 14. Many believers read this chapter and go away believing that through Yeshua, God has gotten rid of the dietary laws of Leviticus 11 and the Biblical Sabbath day. Many believe that these are just matters of conscience. We will take a deeper […]

Grafted in

In chapter 8 Paul continues his thought from chapter 7. He starts by saying, “There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in the Messiah Yeshua.” The Greek word translated here as “condemnation” is katakrima, which doesn’t so much mean condemnation as it does mean the punishment which is a result of condemnation, or […]

Dead to the Law

As we move on now to Romans 7, we see Paul speaking to his Jewish brethren at the congregation in Rome. The chapter begins, saying: “Or do you not know, brethren (for I am speaking to those who know the Torah), that the Torah has jurisdiction over a person as long as he lives?” (Romans […]

Justification

Justification The main theme of Romans is the justification of sinners. Justification is the way in which God accepts a sinful human being and sets them in a place of right-standing through Yeshua. In Classical Greek, the word interpreted as “justification” meant punishment or condemnation, like that in a legal system. In Scripture, however, it […]

Paul’s Mission Field

As Paul went out to preach the gospel, he experienced the wide range of beliefs present in the world. Among the Jewish people, there were various sects to contend with. Although we often split Judaism of that day down into simply Pharisees and Sadducees, even these groups were divided within themselves.  Different schools of thought […]

Who was Paul?

Paul is the number one person people quote when talking about Christianity. This is most likely due to the fact that nearly half of the New Testament is attributed to his authorship. Sometimes it would seem as if he, rather than Christ, is the foundation of Christianity. When attempts are made to understand the life […]
