Do you find Paul’s appeal to scripture convincing? Do you find yourself arguing about scripture with contemporaries? If so, how important is it to make clear what your presuppositions about scripture are?
Paul’s other appeal to the Galatians is based on their experience. How persuasive do you find such arguments today? Can such arguments have any force when people debating a point do not share the same experience?
What is your understanding of the Old Testament in your own life? Would you read the Abraham story the same way as Paul?
If Paul is correct that the experience of life “in Christ” is important for understanding Christian belief, how would you describe experiences of that life that you have had.
