Paul in this chapter presents a very powerful argument! Paul refers back to the promise that “all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you (Abraham).” A promise that could not be fulfilled by the Law because the Law was only given to the Israelites. For Paul noted that the Law that came along some 430 years latter did not cancel God’s promise to Abraham. It was always God’s plan to bring mankind all under one umbrella through faith in His Son! The Law taught us a great deal about the nature of God, sin, and salvation, Paul calls the Law our schoolmaster. The Law was a necessary part of God’s plan, but the solution to mankind’s problems was always Jesus! A solution that can only be accessed through faith!
