I really enjoy studying through the books chronologically, which helps me understand Paul from a real life perspective. Reading Galatians in particular knowing this was his first letter makes so much sense.

I am encouraged to keep going in my studies because of very helpful segments such as this one. It was not too much to chew on at one time which is helpful for someone who has not been to school in 25 years or so. Thank you again.
