In 1900, a systematic weekly study, covering the great book of Galatians, was published as Quarterly Lessons. These lessons were divided up into three quaters--the first lesson beginning in the 3rd Quarter on July 7, 1900 and the last lesson in the 1st Quarter of 1901 with the final review of Galatians on March 2, 1901. There are a total of 35 lessons.
The Book of Galatians is a timeless and pivotal protion of Scripture that details the Gospel and lays bare the condition of the church - in every age, and always in the present. It is part of the Third Angels Message.
“The Sanctuary of God.”
“When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from the people of strange language, Judah was His sanctuary, and Israel His dominion.” Ps. 114:1, 2. “For the Lord’s portion is His people; Jacob is the lot of His inheritance.” Deut. 32:9.
God’s Presence Sanctifies.
A “Strong Consolation.”
E. J. Waggoner
Here is a poor, timid, trembling soul, cast down and despondent by a sense of sins committed, and of general weakness and unworthiness. He is afraid that God will not accept him. He thinks that he is too insignificant for God to notice, and that it would make no difference to anybody, not even to God, if he were lost.
The Work of Faith.
Let us stop a moment to read the words penned by James upon this transaction. “Wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of God.” James 2:20-23.
There is something exceedingly comforting in the thought of receiving the power of the Holy Spirit; and no wonder, for the Spirit is the Comforter. But the great comfort of it is shown in the result, as illustrated in one typical case. When Samuel had anointed Saul king over Israel, he said to him:
PUTTING ON CHRIST; ONE IN HIM.

(Gal. 3:24-29, R. V.)

(Gal. 3:18-26, R. V.)

"The Fact That Jesus Has . . . "
The fact that Jesus has done everything for man is sometimes perverted. It is often said that as He fulfilled the law, keeping it for us, we have nothing whatever to do with it. That is the same as saying that because He always told the truth, we may lie with impunity; that as He honored the Father, we are free to dishonor Him. No greater error could be conceived.
