Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Galatians 3:28


3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek - That is, there is no difference between them; they are equally accepted through faith. There is neither male nor female - Circumcision being laid aside, which was peculiar to males, and was designed to put a difference, during that dispensation, between Jews and gentiles.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 3:28


Ga 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, etc. In Christ the old, worldly lines of separation are all blotted out. All one in Christ Jesus. One person, as it were, "one new man" of which Christ is the head (Eph 2:15). All, without regard to race, blended into one whole.

Discussion for Galatians 3

    A former colleague of mine once said, "We are all God's children". That is so true.
  • A disciple
    "For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus." Leading in to this statement, Paul uses the simile of a "Schoolmaster " and the idea of Graduating has many apparently confused about the importance of the Law "because we are NOW Christians under grace." What part of any of God's commandments are we now released from keeping? Seventh-Day Sabbaths? No Covetousness? Doing no evil to our neighbor? Honoring our parents? NO IDOLS? And which of all the Statutes and ordinances? The sacrifices and observing holy days? We read in the Prophets that these too will all be kept and practiced under the full weight of Christ's Authority, and penalty by His Rod of Iron if they don't. There are many things we have yet to learn! The Apostles commanded that the Gentiles should not be held under scrutiny or bondage to keep the Law of Moses, as in becoming Jews but they DID NOT DENOUNCE IT, OR FORBID IT! Paul's teaching was to show the completeness of the grace of God in Christ for the Believer NOT to overthrow what God had enjoined to Israel for ever.

    My prayer for the church is that we would all become "one" in Christ Jesus.If we all "Put on Christ" by being "Baptised into Christ" (Acts2:38)there would not be all these different denominations,and different doctrines.Let us "build upon the Apostles and the Prophets with Jesus Christ as the Chief Corner Stone" (Eph2:20)
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Eternal truths- 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. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
  • A disciple
    Brian; I think you're not understanding something about "in the Name of Jesus" and "in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." Read Psalm 2 for example, and we see that we are commanded to "Kiss the Son;" which means, "The only Name given among men whereby we must be saved." That doesn't put Him above or apart from the Father and the Holy Spirit; but is part of the whole.
