Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:13


3:13 Christ - Christ alone. The abruptness of the sentence shows an holy indignation at those who reject so great a blessing. Hath redeemed us - Whether Jews or gentiles, at an high price. From the curse of the law - The curse of God, which the law denounces against all transgressors of it. Being made a curse for us - Taking the curse upon himself, that we might be delivered from it, willingly submitting to that death which the law pronounces peculiarly accursed. #Deu 21:23|.

Discussion for Galatians 3

  • Geraldine Cole
    Praise The Lord Jesus who knows all and see all wonderful who would'nt serve a God like That I am sold out to Jesus for ever their No one or Nothing better Amen
  • Daniel Adjei
    The book of Galatians made it clear that the law can't save. The miracles performed among the Galatians were not by the observation of the law(3:5). Their reception of the gifts of the Holy Spirit were not by the observation of the law. Rejection of the blessed doctrine of salvation and justification by faith in Jesus Christ is throwing oneself into a deep darkness and bondage.
  • Philip Hadland
    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
    If the Son sets us free we are Free indeed 😁 !
    Thank you Father for your Love in Christ Jesus Your Son
  • Yahhim
    Paul clearly states here that the individual that lives in faith through the spirit of Christ has put to death the working of the law, and contrariwise faith is of no effect operating under the old law which is contrary to the spirit of the law of faith in and through Christ Jesus .
  • Precious hope
    Thank you lord for moving us from the old to the new which is in Christ Jesus. Thank you for our new identity in Christ regardless of origin,colour or race. we are one in Christ.
    Amen and glory be to the most high God

    Though we no longer live under the law the law was our school master (pattern) until the death burial and resurrection of Christ. Without the law men would have been totally reckless. Now we live by faith. There's no distinction between sex, heritage or background. We can all come boldly to Jesus Christ by faith. All who will let them come. Thank you Jesus though I'm unworthy you bid me to come.
