Galatians 3:1-4

O foolish Galatians Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?

Galatians 3:1-4
1
O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified.
2
Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
3
Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
4
Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?

  1. What caused the Galatians to not obey the truth?

    O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified.
  2. What did Paul want them to know?
    Galatians 3:2-3
    2
    Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith?
    3
    Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?
  3. What was he concerned about?
    Galatians 3:4
    Did you suffer so many things in vain—if indeed it was in vain?

Galatians 3:5-9

Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Galatians 3:5-9
5
Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—
6
just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?
7
Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham.
8
And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.”
9
So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

  1. What part do we play in God doing miracles?
    Galatians 3:5
    Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith—
  2. What did Abraham do that God accounted as righteousness?

    just as Abraham “believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”?

Galatians 3:10-12

But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith." Yet the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them shall live by them."

Galatians 3:10-12
10
For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”
11
Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”
12
But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”

  1. When a person is under the curse of the law, what must they do?
    Galatians 3:10
    For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”
  2. How must we live, to be justified by God?
    Galatians 3:11
    Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”
  3. Since the law is not of faith, what must a man who is under the law live by?
    Galatians 3:12
    But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.”

Galatians 3:13-14

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us.

Galatians 3:13-14
13
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
14
so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.

  1. How has Christ redeemed us fro the curse of the law?
    Galatians 3:13
    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
  2. What blessing has come upon the Gentiles because of what Jesus did?
    Galatians 3:14
    so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.

Galatians 3:15-18

For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

Galatians 3:15-18
15
To give a human example, brothers: even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified.
16
Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.
17
This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.
18
For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.

  1. When a covenant has been ratified, what does no one do?
    Galatians 3:15
    To give a human example, brothers: even with a man-made covenant, no one annuls it or adds to it once it has been ratified.

    Galatians 3:16
    Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.
  3. When did the law come, and what could in not annul?
    Galatians 3:17
    This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.
  4. Why is the inheritance not of the law?
    Galatians 3:18
    For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.

Galatians 3:19-20

What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made.

Galatians 3:19-20
19
Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary.
20
Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.

  1. What purpose thendoesthe lawserve, and how long would it be in affect?
    Galatians 3:19
    Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary.
  2. What does a mediator not do?
    Galatians 3:20
    Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.

Galatians 3:21-25

For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law.

Galatians 3:21-25
21
Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
22
But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
23
Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.
24
So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.
25
But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian,

  1. Why isthe law not against the promises of God?
    Galatians 3:21
    Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.
  2. Why has the Scripture has confined all under sin?
    Galatians 3:22
    But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
  3. What were we kept under before faith came?
    Galatians 3:23
    Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.
  4. As a tutor, what did the law bring us to?
