Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:22


3:22 But, on the contrary, the scripture wherein that law is written hath concluded all under sin - Hath shut them up together, (so the word properly signifies,) as in a prison, under sentence of death, to the end that all being cut off from expecting justification by the law, the promise might be freely given to them that believe.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:22


Ga 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin. But none became righteous by the law. The Scriptures place all under sin that the promise should be to them only who believe through Christ. The promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. All hope is in the gospel. See Ro 11:32.

Discussion for Galatians 3:22

  • My 18 years old prayer request is that the Christian believers from everywhere, some day will understand from Gal.2:16,2:20,3:22-26 as well from Romans 3:22,26 with which faith we have Salvation and in which faith we are living in righteousness in front of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ. For sure with (by) faith OF Christ, Noτ by faith in Christ, as is written in original Greek Textus Receptus, but unfortunately very wrong translated as faith in Christ in most languages. Only the King James and some other English translations are giving correct meaning of this most important bible verse together with only one correct translation from Slavic languages in Serbian Vuk-Danicic translation, and Latin Vulgata and in Spanish Rheina Vallera version. When the Christian preachers and pastors will learn much more Greek language, then they will spread in correct way the Good News of Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus. Amen
