People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:24


Ga 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster. "Tutor", in the Revised Version. In Roman families a trusted slave, a pedagogue, had charge of children, preserved them from harm, and took them to school. The law is such a tutor; not a schoolmaster, but a guide to lead us to the school of Christ. There we are "justified by faith".
