Galatians 3:15-29

Promise and Law: Leading Us to Jesus

A. Promise and Law (15-18)

B. WHY the Law? (19-25)

  1. The law was added “because of transgressions.”  (increased sin, 3:19, 24)
  2. The law was temporary. (In force only until Christ, 3:19)
  3. The law was inferior. The promise is BETTER! (intermediary 3:19-20)
  4. The law was not contrary to the promise. (3:21)
  5. The law could not give life. (3:21-25)
  • Imprisoned
  • Captive
  • Guarded

6. The law pointed to Jesus!

C. Trace OFFSPRING

  • Genesis 3:15
  • Gal 4:4
  • WHO is the promise made to? (16)
  • Mediator? (19)
  • NOW who are we? (29)

D. Trace CHRIST

  • Promise to Christ (16)
  • Law until  Christ (19)
  • Both fulfilled in Christ (22-25)
  • Identity in Christ (26)
  • Identity in Christ leads to Unity in Christ (26-29)
