How shall we live?

Galatians Bible Background

09.25.2015 New Testament: Gal 3.11–12

To read the Bible in a year, read Galatians 3 on September 25, In the year of our Lord 2015

By Don Ruhl

The Law of Moses provided works that the Jews absolutely needed to keep, but now that Jesus has come in fulfillment of the Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms, He has freed the Jews and the world from the works of the Law,

But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.” Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them” (Galatians 3.11–12). 

Even under the Law of Moses, any Israelite found justification by faith, even as we do today. We have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to save us from our sins, hell, and even from ourselves.
