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 3:13

  • 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..
  • Galatians 3:13 has once again proven God 's unconditional love towards us by, not only allowing his only begotten son to die for us but to also cleanse us of any curse no matter where it be rooted. Am free!!!
  • Michael for verse 13
    this verse seems to say that Jesus was hanged from a tree as opposed to being crucified.
  • Biblereader for verse 13
    Here Paul quotes Deuteronomy 21:22, 23, which clearly refers to a stake, not a cross. Since such a means of execution made the person a curse, it would not be proper for Christians to decorate their homes with images of Christ impaled.
  • Adetula babatunde for verse 13
    this is a divine spiritual intervension that God himself in Christ Jesus involve direct to remove any curse that has been placed on humanity as long as we believe in the operation done in the cross of calvary . Deut.
