Discussion for Galatians 3

  • Daniel Mangar
    Very fantastic
  • Brandon The Baptist for verse 13
    Jesus died on the cross and people are taking it out of context cause this verse said tree and that it wasn 't a cross it was a stake well reading in the Gospels it was made clear that there was three nails that nailed him to the cross and that he bared the cross and the wood the cross was made of came from a tree God didn 't make this hard to understand cause He is not the author of confusion... Lord bless these with the knowledge that they lack concerning Your Holy Word that may not pervert it out of ignorance let them ask You for understanding and truth so You may direct them properly turning them away from man 's foolishness towards Your Almightywisdom I ask this in Jesus name amen..
