Under Moses, In Christ

Part 4


Text: Galatians 3:23-29




I. Life under Moses equals bondage. vv. 23-24


A.       Prison, v. 23

B.       Pedagogue, v. 24


II.       Life in Christ equals blessing. vv. 25-29


A.       Free from harsh discipline, v. 25




B.       Sons of God, vv. 26-27


Why is it important to emphasize that Jesus is the One and Only unique Son?

Why is it important that our adoption as “sons of God” is inseparably linked with and dependent upon Jesus’ unique relationship to God as “the” Son of God?


How does Paul assure believers of their adoption as sons of God?


Is Paul teaching that baptism conveys salvation?


How is a person united to Christ, justified and adopted as a son?




How often do you reflect upon your baptism?
