Galatians 3:24-29 is one of the most debated passages in the bible. What is its true meaning? Let’s first see what it says.
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto HaMashiach, that we might be justified by faith.
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of Aluah by faith in HaMashiach Yahusha.
Gal 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into HaMashiach have put on HaMashiach.
Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in HaMashiach Yahusha.
Gal 3:29 And if ye be HaMashiach’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Someone sent me a question asking me how do we explain Galatians 3:24-28? He knows what we believe in as followers of the way, that we believe all things written in the law and in the prophets, even though we follow Messiah Yahusha HaMashiach:
How do you explain Galatians 3:24-29 to a Christian?
Interestingly, Galatians 3 is the chapter that most Christians will take you to, so as to show at least two their foundational beliefs as being true. These include:
Law done away
Now we have “Jesus” we don’t need the law
Neither Jew nor Gentile, neither male nor female (it does not matter who you are)
Now the Most High told us explicitly how to understand his word. He did not tell us to just read verses and take them for what they APPEAR to be saying. Rather, he told us this:
Isa 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
Isa 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Hence this is how we look at Galatians 3:24-28.
However, we also included verse 29 as well, because if we do not take it into consideration as well, then its misunderstanding can cause one to negate all that has been said about verses 24-28.
Take a listen to this episode as it should really edify us as to what Sha’ul (Paul) really means. Now you will understand why Peter warned us in 2 Peter 3:15-16 that those who are unlearned and unstable will “wrest” with the writings of Sha’ul to their own destruction.
