  • Galatians 3:15-29
  • Galatians 3:18 – Our inheritance is based on the promise given to Abraham, not on the law. The Galatians were trying to go back to the old law, but Paul is trying to get them to see that it would not get them any closer to salvation.
  • Galatians 3:19 – God provided the law to define what sin was until Jesus came.
  • Galatians 3:20 – There was a mediator for the Old Covenant, but God was the only one involved when He brought His promise to pass in bringing Jesus. Here God is showing the superiority of Christ and the New Covenant over the Old Covenant.
  • Galatians 3:21-22 – The law and the promise were not contradictory. The law prepared the way for the promise to come.
