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.

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

  • A disciple
    There is no Our Righteousness, and the Lord's Righteousness, if we are truly saved and walking in truth in the Spirit; but our righteousness is His righteousness! The child is under teachers and guardians UNTIL he is an adult, and fully ready to manage the inheritance. Christ has released us from the bonds of sin, and therefore the demand of the Law against sin. It is not a competition for glory!
  • Jimmy a disciple of Jesus
    a schoolmaster is a teacher the law was our teacher to bring us to christ but after that faith has come we are no longer under a schoolmaster..pretty simple to me!! I do not keep any Law under the Levi priesthood...i am under the order of Melchisedec with Jesus being my High Priest..thats where i put my Faith..dont mix your righteousness with the Lords..a little leaven leavens the whole lump!!!
  • Randall Blair
    For the one who commented we are all God's children, please read the rest of the scripture. We are all definitely not a child of God if we are not in Christ Jesus, To be a true child of God you must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and trust in His death on Calvary for salvation. Jesus said in the 3rd chapter of John, " Nicodemus, you must be born again, do not marvel at this saying God bless you.
  • A disciple
    "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus." Does this mean that when we arrive in glory to meet the LORD in the Day of Eternity, that we will all look alike and be all the same? I don't think so! For John wrote in the Prophecy about a multitude that no man can number small AND greast, from out of every Nation and tribe and kindred and tongue worshiping before the Throne. And what about each one's abilities and work that Jesus shall give us to do, and the authority over cities etc? As far as any of us being superior or inferior, sacred or common, the leader or the helper NONE of those things have anything to do with us in Christ! The things that we see and experience now in this world about who's the greatest, and who is only in the world for serving their betters, does not exist with us in Christ! We are ALL brethren, and Jesus alone is our Master, our Leader, and our Superior! Do each of us actually have diversities of gifts, abilities, callings? Are we not all individual and particular members of the body? But all of us together IS THE BODY!
