Gal 3:15–18

3:15–18 God promised saving blessing to the nations through Abraham “and his offspring”—Christ, descended from Abraham in His human nature. That covenant promise was not cancelled by the later giving of the law through Moses. The law does not oppose the promises (v. 21), but assumes them. Its requirements show the hopelessness of earning salvation and point God’s people to faith in Christ (v. 24).
