Present Standing of Israel Part 4 (series: Lessons on Romans)

by John Lowe
(Woodruff, S.C.)

______________________verse 12 notes_____________________

12Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. The Law made distinctions between these classes. For instance, the distinction between Jew and Gentile is insisted on in Deuteronomy 7:6; 14:1, 2. In his morning prayer, a Jewish man thanked God that He had not made him a Gentile, a slave, or a woman. In Christ Jesus, these differences disappear, that is, as far as acceptance with God is concerned. A Jew is not preferred over a Gentile; a free man is not more favored than a slave is, nor is a man more privileged than a woman is. All are on the same level because they are in Christ Jesus. The Galatians were deluded into thinking that they could become Abraham’s seed by keeping the Law. Paul shows otherwise. Christ is the seed of Abraham; the inheritance promised to Abraham was fulfilled in Christ. When sinners believe in Him, they become one with Him. Thus, they become Abraham’s seed, and, in Christ, they inherit all of God’s blessings.
